How to get a copy of a federally approved waiver plan

All federally approved waiver plans are available on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) website.

Navigate the CMS website

To search the CMS website for the current and approved Minnesota waiver plans:

1. Go to the State Waivers List page on the CMS website
2. Under the "REFINE YOUR SEARCH" column on the left, under "State(s)" — uncheck "All States"
3. Under "State(s)" — scroll down and select "Minnesota"
4. Under "Status" — uncheck "Select ALL"
5. Under "Status" — select "Approved"
6. To refine your search, under "Waiver Authority" — select the applicable waiver authority (e.g. 1115, 1915 (b), 1915 (c), etc.). BI, CAC, CADI, DD and EW waiver plans are 1915(c) waiver plans. To view those, uncheck "Select ALL" and then select "1915 (c)."

To view a specific waiver plan:

1. In the applicable box (e.g. MN Elderly) — select "Show More"
2. Under "Approved Application(s) & Related Document(s)" — select "Approved Application"
3. In the box that appears — select "Open" to open the .zip file(s)
4. Select the document that was modified most recently.


If you're unable to navigate the CMS website and need a copy of a current and approved Minnesota waiver plan by email, please:

1. Email the DHS Disability Services Division Response Center at
2. Include in your email which waiver plan(s) you want (e.g. BI, CAC, CADI, DD or EW).
