Recently, the Michigan State Senate proposed a cut to the MI Choice Medicaid Waiver program.
The MI Choice program allows those with Alzheimer’s and dementia to stay in their homes while still getting the care they need. These cuts could cause many individuals to go without care in their home. In fact, the MI Choice Medicaid Waiver program empowers more than 15,000 older adults and adults with disabilities including Alzheimer’s and dementia to live as independently as possible in their homes for as long as possible.
The MI Choice program is cost effective and produces savings of more than 58% over alternative publicly funded long-term care options like nursing homes.
At the start of 2019, there was a wait list of 3,013 older adults, adults with disabilities, and family caregivers wanting access to the MI Choice Waiver program.
