Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver

The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Waiver Program is a long-term care alterative, which provides services that enable individuals to live at home rather than receiving nursing facility care. The program provides home and community-based services to West Virginia residents who are medically and financially eligible to participate.

KEPRO, contracted by the Bureau for Medical services (BMS) is responsible for the day-to-day operations and oversight of the TBI Waiver program. This includes conducting the evaluations that determine medical eligibility for applicants and members, performing provider agency certification and quality/utilization reviews, reviewing requests for prior authorization, providing training and technical assistance to all stakeholders and reviewing requests for prior authorization of TBI Waiver services.
