HOME Choice

HOME Choice is a Medicaid wrap-around program that provides extra support and help with housing to transition eligible Ohioans out of nursing facilities and into home and community-based settings.

A Transitions Coordinator works with individuals to find housing, set up a household (financial assistance may be available), and connect to services that can help them live independently:

  • Case management (before and after transition)
  • Independent living skills training and community support coaching
  • Healthcare, medications, and long-term care services and supports
  • Other services necessary as identified by the discharge planning team

Eligibility

For Ohioans of any age who:

  • Have lived in a long-term care facility for at least 90 days at time of discharge
  • Are active on Medicaid and meet income requirements
  • Agree to move into qualified housing
