Community First Choice (CFC)

This program is designed to help chronically ill and disabled persons who qualify for Medical Assistance to remain in their homes by providing assistance with some of the simple activities of daily living. Help with feeding, dressing, bathing, toileting, and ambulation.

AERS performs the assessment to obtain a level of care for the Community First Choice program. AERS then makes recommendations for services which the patient needs to stay in their home/remain independent in the community. AERS provides the quality assurance oversight for the residential service agencies providing services for CFC recipients.
