BECOME EMPOWERED THROUGH SELF DIRECTION
Self direction enables people with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) to decide which supports and services are needed to live their best life. It is available through Empower’s Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC) division; MSCs help people with IDD who want to self direct their services. Examples of services that can be self directed are consolidated supports and services, respite and community habilitation. Those who elect to self direct have greater authority over their service providers and payment.
