It is important to know that funding through Medicaid for adult services are determined by the level of need and available funding. Because of this it is not unknown for a person to be on a wait list for some time until either funding is available or the person's own situation changes in a way that requires additional care. Because of this it is good idea to apply for medicaid waiver services as soon as possible. It is best to anticipate your child's needs and be prepared to ask for services when they are needed.
