Employment and Community First CHOICES (Employment Program)


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Medicaid & Employment

~~The Employment and Community First CHOICES program is administered by TennCare through its contracted managed care organizations.  It offers services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Services in the program will help people become employed and live as independently as possible in the community.  All new enrollment is in the Employment and Community First CHOICES program, as DIDD’s waivers are closed to new enrollment.

There is a limited amount of funding available to serve people each year.  That means not everyone who wants to apply can enroll or get services right away.."
