human services under 42 USC 1396n (c).
(2) Waiver program. The department shall request a waiver from the federal centers for medicare and
medicaid services in order to receive the federal medical assistance percentage for
home-based and community-based services provided to individuals who are developmentally
disabled and who received post-secondary education on the grounds of institutions. If the waiver is approved the department shall operate a waiver program to provide
those services to no more than 100 individuals per month per year.

is distinguishable from the institution. The department shall set the financial eligibility requirements and functional eligibility
requirements for the waiver program described under sub. (2) the same as the financial eligibility requirements and functional eligibility
requirements for the self-directed services option except for the requirement to be
an individual who is developmentally disabled and who is receiving post-secondary
education on the grounds of a institution.
(4) Services and benefits. The department shall provide the same services under the waiver program described
in sub. (2) as it provides under the self-directed services option. The department shall determine the funding amount for a waiver program participant
under this section.
