Who Chooses My Choice?
My Choice Family Care has become a driving force in helping Wisconsin seniors and adults with physical, intellectual, and developmental disabilities live more active and independent lives. While people may need some help, they are not helpless, and we recognize and respect our members’ right to choose the care they want and need. Since 2000, more than 27,300 people have made My Choice their choice—and partner—for coordinating Family Care benefits. Together with their care managers and nurses, our members create service plans that are tailored to their needs and make the best use of Medicaid funds and community resources.
Better Care by the Numbers
My Choice currently serves just over 8,400 members in nine counties. Of this:
- 36 percent are senior citizens
- 34 percent are adults with physical disabilities
- 30 percent are adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities
More importantly, 100 percent of our members are unique individuals who deserve better care than a one-size-fits-all plan or a permanent place in an institution. We are proud to say we’ve helped over 3,600 people leave nursing homes or long-term care facilities in favor of private homes in the community. With the right care at the right time, our members feel right at home and are making the most of creative care plans that include personal and social benefits for their well-being.
Mapping Out More Opportunities
With a successful track record as an advocate for members and an administrator of Medicaid-funded Family Care benefits, My Choice has been selected to move forward for expansion certification in 17 additional Wisconsin counties in the coming year. This means we will soon be offering more care options to more people, and making an even greater impact on the lives of members.
We are continually developing networks of providers in every service area to meet needs ranging from skilled nursing and home health aides to social workers and employment coaches. With so many opportunities, we invite qualified caregivers to contact us and find out how they can be part of My Choice Family Care.
If you, a family member, or friend need help with daily activities, we invite you to learn more about managed care organizations like My Choice and the Family Care program. We are confident you’ll find care options that exceed your expectations and help you enjoy life with fewer limitations.
