The HealthChoices program is comprised of two components, a behavioral health benefit, and a physical health benefit. Individuals can apply for coverage through the County Assistance Office. Most individuals who would be eligible for the Medical Assistance benefit will be enrolled in the HealthChoices Program, however, there are some exceptions such as those in nursing homes.
