ELDERLY AND INDIVIDUALS WITH PHYSICAL DISABILITIES (EPD) WAIVER PROGRAM
What is the EPD Waiver Program?
The EPD waiver program is a Medicaid Waiver choice program for the elderly and individuals with physical disabilities who are able to safely receive supportive services in a home and community-based setting. The participant or authorized representative can choose a service provider from an available list of approved EPD Waiver Providers. A participant may elect to transfer from one service provider to a different service provider for any approved of service.
What is the Services My Way program?
The Services My Way program is the District of Columbia’s Medicaid participant-directed services program. The program allows individual’s enrolled in the District’s Medicaid EPD waiver and who live in their natural homes to exercise more choice and control over their Medicaid long-term services and supports (LTSS) by self-directing certain EPD waiver services if they or their authorized representative is willing and able to do so.
For more information on Services My Way please contact your EPD waiver case manager.
