I am so excited to share that this Community Service Worker (CSW) will be reclassified (pending Dept of Health and Welfare approval) as of July 1, 2019 as an IIP, with the coming changes in Medicaid rules for DD services. My services will no longer come out of your child’s Family Direct Services (FDS) budget, but will be billed directly to his or her Medicaid card. I will be able to help with these services:
Assessments, treatment recommendations and Treatment Plans for your child who has a diagnosed Developmental Delay or other FDS qualifying struggle, and is on Medicaid.
Help with your Family Training portion of treatment, as required per new Medicaid rules in effect as of July 1st, 2019.
Assist you and your child with Individual and Group: Crisis Intervention, Behavioral Intervention, Habilitative Skills (putting your child’s plan into action).
Interdisciplinary Training in collaboration with your child’s professional providers, such as Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Pathologist, Physical Therapist, Counselor, Dentist, Primary Care Physician, Psychologist.
Supervise FDS providers who require Clinical Supervision ( BA/BS level and below).
This means that you can use your child’s budget for more options! Some of these options may include Respite care, extra support from AA and/or BA/BS level providers, therapeutic tools for your child as approved by your fiscal agent, with the help of your support broker.
