Long ago, you called the proper state agencies to put your child’s name on the waiting list for Medicaid Waiver programs. One day, you receive a letter saying your child’s name has reached the top of the list and that you must contact the agency to get the program started.
Which of the following should you do?
The answer is “D” of course!
When the big day comes and your child reaches the top of the list, here are some important things to keep in mind:

When you have a child with a disability, you may have some expenses throughout the year that qualify for a deduction or credit on your tax return. Don’t wait until April to understand what’s required to support these claims.
