The Medically Fragile Waiver (MF Waiver)
The Medically Fragile Waiver (MF Waiver) serves individuals who have been diagnosed with a medically fragile condition before reaching age 22, and who have a developmental disability or delay, or who are at risk for developmental delay. A medically fragile condition is defined as a chronic physical condition which results in a prolonged dependency on medical care for which daily skilled nursing intervention is medically necessary. Services provided through the MF Waiver are case management, home health care, respite care, private duty nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapies, behavior support consultation, nutritional counseling and specialized medical equipment and supplies. The New Mexico Department of Health, Developmental Disability Services Division (DOH/DDSD) administers the MF Waiver.
