Choices for Independence (CFI) Program

Choices for Independence Overview

The Choices for Independence (CFI) program helps people with disabilities and long-term care needs stay in their homes and communities. With the CFI program, you don’t need to go to a nursing home. Instead, you can choose to live in your own home and stay active in your community. You manage your caregivers and choose the services that best fit your needs. This allows you to live independently. 

If you’re eligible for CFI, you’ll also get a CFI case manager to help you throughout the process. The Choices for Independence (CFI) is a home- and community-based (HCBS) waiver, funded by Medicaid.
