Managing and coordinating care in the home
The Mi Choice Waiver program is a comprehensive, community-based program designed specifically for low income persons who need nursing-home level of care. 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 the 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.
All persons referred to the program receive a telephone interview to assist in determining eligibility for an in-home assessment. An individual not eligible for the assessment is assisted by a qualified Information and Assistance Specialist. If the person is eligible for the assessment, a nurse and social worker visit the home for a detailed assessment. The nurse and social worker will evaluate the individual’s physical and mental health, functional status, informal and formal supports, home environment, financial resources, and other resources. An eligibility specialist will submit the application for Medicaid and formal services.
