NURSING HOME TRANSITION AND DIVERSION

You can choose a nursing home.

Giving the nursing-home eligible the option to stay home

The Nursing Home Transition and Diversion (NHTD) program is a Medicaid waiver program designed to support individuals who are nursing home-eligible but wish to remain in their own homes.

Participants in the program receive the same array of services, supervision, and expert care they would expect from a nursing home — all within their own walls.

You may be eligible for the NHTD
program if you:

Need nursing home level of care
Are eligible for Medicaid
Are over the age of 18
