  • Self Directed Supports

    Self-directed Medicaid services means that participants, or their representatives if applicable, have decision-making authority over certain services and take direct responsibility to manage their services with the assistance of a system of available supports.

    The individual may choose to use both budget and employer authority when creating a life plan.  They develop this plan with the help of a service broker and service coordinator as well as people in their circle of support.
