The Office of Community Choice Options is responsible for three major functions:

  • Implements nursing facility level regulations, policies and procedures to ensure that Medicaid beneficiaries in need of long-term care receive quality services and appropriate service delivery in the least restrictive care setting;

  • Administers the Pre-Admission Screening program statewide in three (3) Long Term Care Field Offices. Pre-Admission Screening is a care needs assessment process available to persons applying for Medicaid reimbursed long-term care in either nursing facilities or home and community-based alternatives. Pre-Admission Screening helps applicants and families choose care settings for long-term care services delivery and assists them in securing the selected placement site; 

  • Administers and supervises the statewide Community Choice Program designed to select short term Medicaid Nursing Facility residents, provides them with choices on community based alternatives and coordinates their discharge. This program will encourage those individuals capable of living in the community to do so. Consumers are identified, encouraged to consider alternate housing with the necessary support services, and assisted as they make the transition from a nursing facility to community housing.
