The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs (DDSN) provide a broad range of Home and Community Based Waiver (HCBW) services to Medicaid eligible individuals with the most severe physical impairments involving head and spinal cord injuries.
