My Choice Home-Based Services
Managing and coordinating care in the home
The MI Choice Waiver program is a comprehensive, community-based program designed specifically for low income adults who need nursing-home level of care but want to remain in home or community-based living environments. The goal is to provide individuals with a choice to remain living independently in the community with services, instead of going to a nursing home.
Adults who meet income, asset, and level of care requirements can receive the services they need to remain living in their own home, the home of a caregiver, or in a residential setting such as an assisted living facility, adult foster care home or home for the aged. All MI Choice Waiver services are Medicaid funded.
