Oklahoma’s Living Choice program gives eligible Oklahomans the opportunity to live in their own homes in a community setting while receiving the necessary services and support to meet their needs. The Medicaid program is designed to transform the current long-term care system by promoting home and community-based care instead of institutional care.

With the right support, many individuals can regain their independence as active, engaged community members. Living Choice offers various community-based services to help make the move successful.

Living Choice has transitioned approximately 1,000 Oklahomans and saved the state over $9 million.
