People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are transitioning from institutional to community settings at a record pace. Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waivers provide long-term services and supports to achieve and maintain successful community living. Occupational therapy (OT) services promote optimal participation in community living but are not provided by all HCBS waivers. This study explored how HCBS waivers provided OT services in fiscal year 2015.
