HealthChoice Illinois MLTSS Waiver Programs

We want you to stay well and live independently

Molina Healthcare is dedicated to getting you the help and care you need. If you are a Member of our HealthChoice Illinois MLTSS plan, there are waiver services available which will provide you services to help you live independently.


The Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) has waiver services available for Members who qualify. DHS performs an assessment, called a determination of need (DON), to see if Members qualify for waiver services. If a Member qualifies for waiver services, the Member will be able to get home and community-based services.

Members on the Molina Healthcare MLTSS program will receive the MLTSS Member Handbook with more information in their new Member welcome packet.

The waiver programs offer long term services and supports to help you live in your own home or in a community setting. Not all services will be right for you. Once you agree to these services, Molina Healthcare will work with you to arrange them.
