Financial Management Services (FMS) Executive Roundtables are an opportunity for a small group of FMS leaders throughout the country to gather for focused discussions on key issues. Applied Self-Direction will hold an FMS Executive Roundtable on November 7th in Alexandria, Virginia. The roundtable topic will be “Are Financial Management Services Being Undervalued?" Feedback from a number of sources suggests that states and MCOs may not fully understand the complexity of FMS, and as a result may undervalue the essential services provided. This can be particularly troublesome when decision-makers are unfamiliar with the mechanics of self-direction. The misconception that “it’s just payroll” still exists, and in an effort to minimize costs, the critical functions delivered by FMS entities may be underappreciated and under-resourced.
