MEDICAID SERVICE COORDINATION

MEDICAID SERVICE COORDINATION

A myriad of services are available to people with developmental disabilities and more specifically, autism spectrum disorders. Researching and accessing these services can often be a daunting task requiring the knowledge and expertise of a professional who understands the system of services. Medicaid Service Coordinators begin by developing an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) based upon input from the person and his/her family. This plan then acts as a guide to the attainment of individual goals. Medicaid Service Coordinators meet with the person and his/her family regularly to monitor the progress of the goals. Medicaid Service Coordinators attend relevant meetings, acting as advocates. Medicaid Service Coordinators also gather information and pass it on so that informed decisions can be made.

Service Coordinators obtain links to services such as:

  • Day Habilitation
  • Education
  • Respite
  • Residential Habilitation
  • Environmental Modifications and Safeguards for the home
  • Family Education and Training
  • Adaptive Equipment
  • Supportive Employment

  • Education
  • Social Security
  • Medicaid
  • Individual Rights
