MnCHOICES is a single, comprehensive, web-based application that integrates assessment and support planning for all persons seeking access to Minnesota’s long-term services and supports. The Initiative Fact Sheet is an overview of the web-based application.

DHS has redesigned the MnCHOICES site. Check out the Quick links section below and the CountyLink left column MnCHOICES drop-down menu that lists all MnCHOICES pages.

Latest News & Updates

DHS recently designed a new way to gather feedback on the recipient experience with long-term services and supports in Minnesota. DHS launched Phase I of the Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Improvement Tool in fall 2017 as part of the MnCHOICES Support Plan application. Case managers and certified assessors will use it to gather feedback from older adults and people with disabilities who receive long-term services and supports. This feedback will help us standardize measurements of quality and outcomes for HCBS recipients. Visit the Frequently asked questions about the new LTSS Improvement Tool webpage for more information.

DHS has updated the memo on Efficiencies for achieving full implementation of MnCHOICES (PDF). We have replaced the information about the use of legacy documents under the Completed section, No. 3.
