Community Health Offering Innovative Care & Educational Services (CHOICES)
CHOICES was created by the Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) and supported by residents of Alachua County. The enabling state legislation, Florida Statute Chapter 212, allows counties to levy a special sales tax to fund health care. CHOICES has been funded by a 0.25% sales tax approved by Alachua County voters in August 2004. The tax was approved for seven years. Collection began in January of 2005 and ended in December, 2011.
CHOICES is a competitive health services grant program offered by the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) and administered by the Department of Community Support Services. It is designed to assist uninsured residents by providing grant funding to health care providers in Alachua County, so as to help ensure the stable provision of quality health care services to eligible County citizens.
