Home By Choice
Home By Choice is a program that is funded by
managed care organizations to help nursing home residents return to the community.
In order to qualify for Home By Choice, an individual must currently be living in a nursing home, have Medicaid benefits, and be enrolled in Amerigroup, Molina, or United Healthcare for STAR+PLUS.
Home by Choice relocation specialists help nursing home residents arrange housing (e.g., move in with family, get apartments of their own, or move to assisted living facilities), apply for transition grants to pay for things like security/utility deposits, essential furnishings, and start-up groceries; and set up other community services (like banking and transportation) that are not paid for by the Medicaid program.
For more information about Home By Choice, or to make a referral, call 800-272-3921, ext. 82396.
The North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center has a program that helps nursing home residents who don't have Medicaid connect with community-based services. For more information about the options counseling program, call 855-937-2372.
