Medicaid ACS Home and Community Based Waiver Service (HCBS) is a state and federally funded program for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities with an age of onset before the age of 22. HCBS are an alternative to institutionalization. An individual in the ACS Waiver lives as independently as possible in the community (the least restrictive setting) with Waiver services and other supports instead of living in an institution (a restrictive setting).
