Self-Direction Conference


Applied Self-Direction hosts a national biennial Self-Direction Conference, featuring attendees and speakers from federal and state government, managed care organizations, Medicaid provider organizations, self-advocacy groups, healthcare technology vendors, and more. The two-day conference focuses on innovation and emerging best practices regarding the design, infrastructure, and provision of self-directed services across the country. Past speakers included representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Administration for Community Living, Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, and Veterans Health Administration, as well as self-direction program administrators from over two dozen states.

The most recent Self-Direction Conference was held in 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the next in-person Self-Direction Conference has been postponed to 2022. However, we’re excited to announce that we are hosting a virtual Self-Direction Conference in Spring 2021. While we’re disappointed we won’t be able to meet with you in-person this year, we’re looking forward to bringing the self-direction community together for collaboration, learning, and fun!
