CHANCE Waiver Services

The Children's Health Access in Community Environments (CHANCE) waiver manual will be withdrawn from the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) website effective June 1, 2017. The CHANCE waiver was a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities (PRTF) community alternatives demonstration waiver. This waiver was discontinued in September 2014.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines allowed CHANCE waiver participants to continue to receive waiver services until they were successfully transitioned out of the waiver. As of April 20, 2016, all CHANCE waiver participants were successfully transitioned out of the waiver.
