Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Medicaid Waiver
The Nursing Home Transition and Diversion, or NHTD, Medicaid Waiver Program is a community and home-based program that helps NY’s Medicaid-eligible seniors and people with disabilities to receive the complete services they need while they are living in a community-based setting rather than in a nursing home, congregate care setting, or other institution.
This program is available to all New York State residents who meet the following criteria:
- Eligible for community-based Medicaid
- Assessed as needing a nursing home level of care
- Either aged 18-64 that have a verified physical disability or are aged 65 or older when applying to the program
The person must also be able to live safely in the community with the services and supports offered through Medicaid, the waiver program, and other community resources.
