Understanding Self Direction: A Look at Person Directed Services

Individuals who self-direct report greater access to services as well as more satisfaction with these services. However, with the growth of self-directed services, many questions remain to be answered about how to access them and the best ways of promoting individual choice within a Medicaid funding environment. This session will discuss how self-direction services work, offer information about the types of goods and services and examine the benefits. We will also explore improvements to strengthen person directed services in the future.
