Alabama Personal Choices Program

The Personal Choices Program is a Medicaid program that allows for care recipients to pick and choose their own care providers, which can include family members. This consumer direction option is available to those enrolled in a Home and Community Based Waiver Services program, such as the SAIL  program and the Elderly and Disabled Waiver. Under the Personal Choices Program, a monthly allowance is provided, in which the care recipient can use to hire help, pay for medical equipment, or cover other care expenses.
