Home and Community Care
The Choices For Independence Program (formerly known as the Home and Community-Based Care program for the Elderly and Chronically Ill, or HCBC-ECI) is available for seniors and adults with chronic illnesses who are financially eligible for Medicaid and medically qualify for the level of care provided in nursing facilities.

Administered by the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, the program provides a wide range of service choices that help seniors and adults with chronic illnesses to continue living independently in their own homes and communities.

The Choices for Independence brochure provides introductory information about the program. People who wish to apply for the program may contact NH ServiceLink at (866) 634-9412.
