What is the Nursing Home Transition Program??

After the needs/desires of the patient are evaluated and the family contribution discussed, an RN or social worker can provide the patient and family with a list of local agencies that provide MI Choice guidance (see slide 3)

The purpose of having an outside agency take over from here is, the possibility of conflict of interest decreases as the agency has no profitability from patients decisions

Priority groups are young adults who age out of the Children’s Special Health Care Program, people already in nursing homes who want to go home, and people who need adult protective services

There are also insurance and income stipulations

After a patient is determined qualified for the program, the agency is then responsible for “implementing cost controls, data collection, and financial management”

  • “In support of seniors and people with disabilities, $14.1 million is recommended to reduce the waiting list for the MIChoice Home and Community Based Waiver Program.
