The Department of Social and Health Service’s Developmental Disabilities Administration is hosting an informational webinar on the Consumer Directed Employer project.
January 22, 2019
10:00 am to 11:00 am
Why is this happening?
The Individual Provider work force has grown to 35,000 workers and the complexity of managing this workforce has greatly increased. Time spent by case management, customer service, and other social services staff on the administrative functions of Individual Provider management takes away from the amount of time available to perform assessment, service planning and case management for individuals we serve.
Senate Bill 6199 passed the legislature during the 2018 legislative session; authorizing the Department to contract with a Consumer Directed Employer as the legal employer for Individual Providers. The project will efficiently transfer credentialing, payroll and other employer responsibilities from the Aging and Long-Term Support Administration, Developmental Disability Administration and Area Agencies on Aging to the Consumer Directed Employer. This change is expected to take place no earlier than July 1, 2020.
