My son is 2 and 1/2 years old. He was accepted for michelle p waiver. We got as far as getting a budget but then got denied. His stockbroker said she's never had that happend. I talked to insurance and they gave me a number to have my provider call. Is my provider the one who would have referred him or who? I'm trying to find out who I need to give this number to. First steps ( early intervention) is the one who referred him.

Please read the "eligibility requirements" section. One must meet "Medicaid financial eligibility requirements." Its right there on the website for the program. Please do not promote inaccurate information.

Michelle P Waiver has no bases on income. None at all. You can be a millionaire and still qualify for the Michelle P Waiver. It is non-income based.

I'm not understanding any of this, a stockbroker? Why would a stockbroker have an interest in a childs disability?

Usually, that is called a 'caseworker'. A stockbroker is a financial advisor.

Call the office that referred him. Either that, or call your provider, as your insurance company has instructed you to do.

The stock broker was provided by michelle p waiver. We do meet eligibility requirements. We don't have liquid assets. The stock broker is not my personal stock broker but was provided by the waiver program to budget for his services.

Here's the deal. The phrase "Meet FINANCIAL eligibility requirements".

If you have a stockbroker, it's highly unlikely that your income falls within the financial requirements. If you have a stockbroker, you have what they would consider liquid assets that can be used for your child's care.

The stock broker said we were all set to go then got a all saying denied and she thinks it was a paperwork error but they wot tell us which paper yet. That's why I was told to call insurance and then they say they can't talk to me.

According to my research, "Persons with a developmental or intellectual disability who require a protected environment while learning living skills, educational experiences, awareness of their environment and meet Medicaid financial eligibility requirements."

So, perhaps he was referred, but does not meet eligibility requirements. And, I'd have to say that if you are using a stockbroker, you probably do not meet the financial requirements.

However, your provider would be the first person to contact, if that's who your insurance said to contact. From what I understand, it's a program for those who don't have regular insurance already, if you have to meet FINANCIAL eligibility requirements
