Community First Choice
Community First Choice (CFC) provides certain services and supports to individuals living in the community who are enrolled in the Medicaid program and meet CFC eligibility requirements. Services and supports may include:
- activities of daily living (eating, toileting, and grooming), activities related to living independently in the community, and health-related tasks (personal assistance services);
- acquisition, maintenance, and enhancement of skills necessary for the individuals to care for themselves and to live independently in the community (habilitation);
- providing a backup system or ways to ensure continuity of services and supports (emergency response services); and
- training people how to select, manage and dismiss their own attendants (support management).
CFC is also available through managed care organizations for individuals who meet eligibility criteria. Information about eligibility for CFC is available at this link.
