HOME Choice is a transition program. It helps you move from a long-term care facility into a home or community-based setting where you will continue to have access to the same services you received in the long-term care facility. Your transition from the long-term care facility into your new home is carefully monitored by a transition coordinator. Your transition coordinator will work with you and your family to help you find appropriate housing, set up your household (acquire furniture and other household goods), connect to community services to help you maintain your independence, and coordinate your health care and prescription services/benefits.
HOME Choice provides participants a greater choice and control over the services received in their preferred setting.
To participate in HOME Choice you must:
Those eligible may enroll on a state waiver program (programs that provide an alternative to institutional care) or receive State Plan Medicaid services. Also, eligible people may receive community transition services (goods and services that will assist a successful transition to the community) up to $2,000 per person, independent living skills training, a community support coach, nursing, social work or counseling, nutritional consultation, communication aids, and service animals.
The HOME Choice program moves eligible long-term care facility residents into approved home and community-based settings. Your transition coordinator will help you find appropriate housing. Approved housing options include:
