Upcoming Events For Program Members
Participant Direction 201
Support Brokerage in PD Services
Friday, May 29, 2-3:30pm EST
Open to FMS & State Agency Members
Contracting support brokerage services to FMS providers is becoming more prevalent in participant direction programs. As such, this participant direction 201 training will focus on support brokerage in participant direction services. NRCPDS presenters will discuss 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 will also be a panel discussion with state representatives from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services and New Jersey Division of Disability Services. Members will have an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters and panel members at the end of the training.
