Self Direction 201: Support Brokerage

This May 2015 Self Direction 201 training, Support Brokerage, was developed for NRCPDS Members at Boston College. Contracting support brokerage services to FMS providers is becoming more prevalent in participant direction programs. NRCPDS presenters discussed CMS requirements for information and assistance, person-centeredness, instances when support brokerage is contracted to FMS providers and typical duties associated with this, monitoring efforts, and quality oversight. There was also a panel discussion with state representatives from Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services and New Jersey Division of Disability Services.
