Thank you for your interest in the Missouri Medicaid ADULT DAY CARE (ADC) Waiver Program.  The ADC Waiver provides adult day care to active MO HealthNet participants ages 18 to 63 who meet the nursing facility level of care.  Adult day care services under the Aged and Disabled Waiver provide adult day care to active MO HealthNet participants aged 63 and over. Adult day care services provide continuous care and supervision to disabled adults in a licensed adult day care setting. Services include, but are not limited to, assistance with activities of daily living, planned group activities, food services, client observation, skilled nursing services as specified in the individual’s plan of care, and transportation. Planned group activities include socialization, recreation and cultural activities that stimulate the individual and help the participant maintain optimal functioning. Meals which are provided as part of the adult day care service do not constitute a “full nutritional regimen” (3 meals a day). The provider must arrange or provide transportation to and from the adult day care facility at no cost to the participant.  Click here  for MO HealthNet Provider Bulletin, Volume 35 Number 26 on the ADC Waiver Program.
