Nursing Home Transition & Diversion (NHTD) Waiver Program
ElderChoice | Syracuse, NY
What is the Nursing Home Transition & Diversion Waiver?
The NHTD Waiver is a NYS Medicaid funded program, specifically designed for adults who have sustained a physical disability, have a chronic illness and/or are over the age of 65, who require supports to circumvent a nursing home or institutional level of care. Services through the NHTD Waiver are individually designed to provide support for person-centered goals, while ensuring the participant can reside safely in their own home.
A participant in the NHTD Waiver may choose to receive Service Coordination only, or a combination of Service Coordination plus ancillary services to support their health, welfare and overall well-being.
Referrals to the NHTD Waiver Program must be made through the local Regional Resource Development Center (RRDC), as directed by NYS Department of Health.
