MI Choice

What is MI Choice?

MI Choice Medicaid Waiver (MI Choice) is a long-term care program, providing in-home services to older adults and individuals with a disability who medically qualify for nursing home care.Through MI Choice, eligible adults receive Medicaid-covered services like those provided by nursing homes in their own home, the home of a loved one, and some community-based settings. Services offered may include personal care, homemaking, medication management, home delivered meals, non-emergency medical transportation and more. 

A licensed Social Worker and a Registered Nurse perform a comprehensive assessment to determine what help is needed, then connect individuals to quality services offered through our network of partners. In order to promote and preserve the dignity and well-being of the people we serve, only those services necessary for independence and accepted by the individual will be provided.

The services and supports available through the MI Choice program include:

  • Adult Day Health (Adult Day Care)
  • Chore Services
  • Community Health Worker
  • Community Living Supports
  • Community Transportation (medical or non-medical)
  • Counseling
