HCS

WHAT IS HCS?

HCS is a Medicaid waiver program that supplies services and supports to Texans with an intellectual disability (ID) or a related condition so that they can live in the community.

HCS services are intended to supplement rather than replace services received from other programs, such as Texas Health Steps, or from natural supports, including families, neighbors or community organizations.

WHO CAN GET HCS?

HCS may be available to any Texas resident not living in an institutional setting who:

  • Has an IQ of 69 or below or has an approved related condition with an IQ of 75 or below.
     

  • Has mild to severe deficits in adaptive behavior.
     

  • Is eligible for Medicaid benefits.
     

  • Is not enrolled in any other Medicaid waiver program.
