This author addresses questions about the efficacy of Choices for Care (CFC), a Section 115 waiver program that allows Vermont to encourage Medicaid-eligible state residences to receive long-term care in their homes rather than nursing homes. The article addresses questions about CFC's impact on Medicaid recipients who need skilled nursing care. It also addresses questions concerning the program's cost effectiveness, and whether CFC has created additional costs. Finally, the article addresses the question of whether CFC will radically change long-term care and influence other states.
