Long Term Services and Supports

Choices for Care Program

Choices for Care (High/Highest) provides a package of long-term services and supports to Vermonters who are age 18 years and over and need nursing home level of care. People who need nursing home level of care typically require extensive or total assistance on a daily basis with personal care. Eligible people choose where to receive their services: in their home, in their family’s home, an Adult Family Care home, Enhanced Residential Care or nursing facility. People must meet a clinical and financial eligibility for long-term care Medicaid in Vermont.

Attendant Services Program

The Attendant Services Program (ASP) supports personal care services for adults with a “severe and permanent disability” who need physical assistance with activities of daily living (such as bathing, getting dressed and eating) to remain in their homes. Applicants must be able to direct their own attendant care services. Payroll and employer services occur through a Fiscal Employer Services Agency called ARIS Solution.

Aging & Disability Resource Connections-No Wrong Door

Vermont’s Aging Disabilities Resource Connections (ADRC) initiative provides people of all ages, disabilities, and incomes with the information and support they need to make informed decisions about long term services and supports.  ADRC builds on the infrastructure of eight ‘core partners’. These core partners include the five Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), the Vermont Center for Independent Living (VCIL), the Brain Injury Association of Vermont (BIAVT), and Vermont 211.

ICD10 Implementation

The International Classification Diseases (ICD) is a coding system used to specify diagnosis and related procedures when billing for related medical services. The US Federal government, through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), has mandated the use of ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes and ICD-10-PCS for inpatient procedure coding throughout the healthcare system effective October 2015.

Adult Day Services

Adult Day Services offer community-based non-residential supports to assist adults with physical and/or cognitive impairments to remain as active in their communities as possible. Adult day centers provide a safe, supportive environment where people can come during the day and receive a range of professional health, social and therapeutic services, as well as a nutritious meal and valuable social interaction. Adult day services also provide respite, support and education to family members and caregivers.

Residential Options

People who are in need of assistance and a place to live, may be eligible for services to help meet that need.

Adult Family Care

Adult Family Care (AFC) is a 24-hour, home-based, shared living option for eligible Choices for Care (CFC) participants. Authorized Agencies (AA) are paid a daily tiered rate by Medicaid to contract with private, unlicensed family homes that serve one to two people that are not related to the home provider. The home provider receives a tax-free stipend to provide services to the person.
