Service Details

Description

The MnCHOICES process helps to identify a person's support needs and the services and programs that will meet those needs. It also helps a person to access those services and programs.


During the assessment, staff use MnCHOICES to:
* Interview you about your need for services and supports
* Provide a referral for services
* Give you a summary of what was learned in the assessment interview


The MnCHOICES assessment determines eligibility for publicly-funded long-term services and supports, including:
* Alternative Care (AC) program
* Brain Injury (BI) waiver
* Community Alternative Care (CAC) waiver
* Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI) waiver
* Consumer Support Grant (CSG)
* Developmental Disability (DD) waiver
* Elderly Waiver (EW)
* Essential Community Supports (ECS)
* Personal Care Assistance/Community First Services and Supports (PCA/CFSS)
* Semi-Independent Living Services (SILS)


When an assessment determines that a person is eligible for publicly-funded long-term services and supports, staff will help that person to make an informed choice about waiver services and other state programs. This includes creating a plan with the person that outlines services and supports based upon the person's needs, and providing them a copy of their plan.
