Section 21 - Home and Community Based Benefit for members with Intellectual Disabilities or Autistic Disorders

The Home and Community Based Benefit (HCB or Benefit) for members with Intellectual Disabilities or Autistic Disorders gives members eligible for this Benefit the option to live in their own home or in another home in the community thus avoiding or delaying institutional services. The Benefit is offered in a community-based setting as an alternative for members who qualify to live in an Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID). The Benefit supplements, rather than replaces supportive, natural personal, family, work, and community relationships and complements.
