What is GAPP who
is Eligible?

Georgia Pediatric Program is a Medicaid/Katie Beckett program that provides FREE or AT NO COST services to medically fragile children under the age of 21 in need of skilled nursing care and personal care support, in their homes. Services are approved based on the child’s medical needs, and families who are eligible for Medicaid can apply for GAPP at any time.

Can I qualify if I do not meet the Medicaid Income Requirement?

Yes. Katie Beckett Waiver, or Deeming Waiver, is an eligibility category for Medicaid for children under the age of 18. The Katie Beckett Waiver takes parents’ income out of the picture and bases the decision on the child’s needs. If the child qualifies for the Katie Beckett Waiver, they become eligible for services available under the regular state Medicaid plan.
