2019 Self-Direction Conference Breakout Session: Think employer authority-only programs can’t get creative? Think again! Consumer Directed Choices has embarked on a multi-year effort to ensure consumers or their representatives have the maximum control possible over their program by having them determining their workers’ wages and saving for bonuses. CDChoices CEO, Elizabeth Martin, explains the what, why and how of what they did, along with the initial impact of the change. She will be joined by consumers who will share their experiences so far with this new way of doing things.
