CHOICES is Tennessee’s long-term care program. CHOICES might help you or your loved one get long-term care. CHOICES can help you get the home care you need to stay in the community. It might also pay for care in a nursing home. CHOICES eligibility is complicated. Feel free to call Tennessee Justice Center for free help at 877-608-1009.
There are three different groups of CHOICES.
- CHOICES Group 1 – Nursing home care for people of any age.
- CHOICES Group 2 – Home services that don’t cost more than a nursing home. You must be older than 65 OR older than 21 with a physical disability.
- CHOICES Group 3 – Home services that cost no more than $15,000 per year. You must be older than 65 OR older than 21 with a physical disability. As of July 1, 2015, you must be getting Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to get CHOICES 3.
