Home Care Services: MI-Choice Medicaid Waiver
Your Community. Your Choice.
Our Person-Centered Planning approach honors an individual's preferences, choices and abilities when planning care. Consultants support, educate and encourage the care recipient in decision making, but do not make the decisions on their behalf.
Once the planning process is complete, care recipients also have the choice of whether they would like an Area Agency on Aging 1-B Care Manager to coordinate and manage care services on their behalf or they would like to manage these services themselves.
The MI Choice Home and Community Based Medicaid Waiver is a program where Medicaid pays for home care services in an individual’s residence (home, caregiver’s home, assisted living facility). To qualify an individual must be 18 years of age or older, require a nursing home level of care and have a monthly income of $2,130 or less and assets no greater than $2,000.
For qualified individuals the MI Choice program will help cover services such as personal care, homemaking, adult day services, in-home respite programs for the caregiver, meals on wheels and personal emergency response systems.
For more information on the MI Choice program please the Area Agency on Aging 1-B Information and Assistance Line at (800) 852-7795 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Note: Services through this program are paid for by the Michigan Department of Community Health and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
