The CCP is a 1115 Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver program that permits New Jersey to receive a federal match on an array of approved waiver services and supports to Medicaid beneficiaries to live in the community and avoid institutionalization. The CCP is a critical component of the Division’s ability to provide services in the community to individuals with developmental disabilities.  Without the CCP, New Jersey could only use Medicaid funding to help provide services to these individuals if they resided in an institution. 

In order to enroll on the CCP, individuals must be eligible for Division services; must meet the specified clinical level of care for Intermediate Care Facility of Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/ID) and must meet specific Medicaid requirements regarding income and resources. The CCP provides needed supports and services for adult individuals, 21 and older who reside in a variety of living arrangements – with their families, in licensed residential settings, or in a variety of other unlicensed settings.   

The CCP provides all enrolled participants with choice amongst approved waiver services and providers.  Individuals and their families will have the flexibility to choose the options and opportunities for services that will best meet their needs with the assistance of Support Coordinators who will assist them in developing an Individualized Service Plan and link them to appropriate services.
