Medicaid Waiver Assistance Support
A free application assistance program provided to families with children, newborn to age 22, living with significant & complex disabilities.The Medicaid waivers cover the costs of medical care and are used as secondary forms of health coverage after a primary insurance provider pays first or not at all for services disabled children require.
Cam and Madi's Promise, Incorporated (C.A.M.P) exists to advocate for the growing number of families with developmentally disabled, or medically fragile children requiring necessary, costly medical care they would not otherwise be able to afford without a Medicaid waiver. C.A.M.P seeks to reduce the financial burden of these families by providing free application assistance to them when applying for the TEFRA Katie Beckett and/or New Options & Comprehensive (NOW/COMP) Medicaid waivers.

It can be difficult for any parent to meet the needs of their children.
