Independent Choices

IndependentChoices, as well as ARChoices, falls under the broad group of Medicaid-funded programs called Self-Directed with Service Budget. These programs allow adults with physical disabilities and people who are older to live independent, community-centric lives while receiving in-home care. IndependentChoices is the nation’s flagship self-directed home and community-based services program, and Palco has been involved since the beginning.

For more information about this program, contact the Arkansas Department of Human Services, Division of Aging and Adult Services, or Palco. To hire a new caregiver, please contact Palco at 866-710-0456 to schedule an appointment with your Support Coordinator.
