Personal Choice Program

The Personal Choice program is a self-directed option for Medicaid long-term services and supports (LTSS) for people who want to get care while continuing to live at home. Self-directed means that the person chooses who provides their care and when. Medicaid beneficiaries who select this option manage their service budget, how much their caregivers are paid within certain limits, and decide the type of training they receive.

Personal Choice includes a specific set of Medicaid services including personal care, homemaker and chore services, self-directed goods and services, and supports. The State has contracts with several community agencies that assist a beneficiary participating in the program with developing a plan of care, managing services, and paying the caregiver they choose.

Who is Eligible?

• Adults 18-64 with disabilities, and anyone 65 and older who is eligible for Medicaid LTSS

• The Personal Choice program is for Medicaid LTSS beneficiaries only
