Adjustments for Individual Circumstances

​​​There are a number of ways to access additional funding for individuals receiving services under the NC Innovations Wavier. However, it is important to note that the waiver cost limit of $135,000 per year may not be exceeded when pursing additional funding. There are generally two different reasons to access additional funding. The first reason is for unexpected situations. An example is the need to access additional funding for respite because the caregiver is experiencing health problems and requires more relief than initially planned.  The second reason is the need to access additional funding because there has been a significant change in support needs. An example is the need for additional Personal Care to provide supervision and support because the individual has recently been diagnosed with dementia and is experiencing a regression of skills. ​
