As of 2015, the state of Florida provides several Medicaid waivers, such as those for people with HIV or AIDS, autism, or traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, notes Medicaid.gov. The federal government allows the states to provide these waivers in order to test ways to deliver health care services.
Florida Medicaid regulations allow for day health care, skilled nursing, specialized medical equipment, home-delivered meals and case management for those with HIV or AIDS, states Medicaid.gov. The Florida waiver for those with autism allows for payment for things such as life skills development and speech, occupational and physical therapy. The traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries waiver allows for things such as life skills training and assistive technology.
