Idaho Eligibility Guidelines
There are two steps in determining if your loved one can obtain services through Idaho Medicaid. First, the candidate must meet financial requirements. Financial ability is determined through the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Division of Self Reliance. There is an application process which can take up to a few weeks to complete and become approved. Once a candidate has been approved through self reliance, a request is made to the regional office of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare to make an assessment. A nurse reviewer will meet with the candidate in their home and determine if and what type of services are needed. Generally, waiver candidates must require nursing home level care, be legal Idaho residents and be 65+ years old. If between the ages of 18-64, they may still qualify but require a designation of disabled by the SSA. For the disabled, the program is known as the DD waiver.
