Care giver and the child
What is GAPP?

Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP) is a Medicaid program that provides services to medically fragile children under the age of 21 in need of skilled nursing care and personal care support in their homes and in the community. Services are approved based on the child’s medical needs, and families who are eligible for Medicaid can apply for GAPP at any time.


The Katie Beckett Waiver or “Deeming Waiver” grants Medicaid Benefits to children under the age of 18 regardless of their parents’ income. Qualification for the Katie Beckett Waiver is based solely on the institutional level of care the child requires. If a child receives the Katie Beckett Waiver, they become eligible for all services available under the regular state Medicaid plan, including GAPP services.
