Participant Directed & Managed Services
Participant Directed and Managed Services (PDMS) is a service model that places the participant, family and/or guardian in the decision making role with regard to support staff, their individual budget and overall service design.
Participants do not have to be living with their family in order to choose PDMS. Services through PDMS must be allow for each individual to manage services on a day to day basis, including designing services, selecting provider, deciding how funds will be spend (within their approved budget and guidelines for utilization of Medicaid funds) and ongoing oversight of their services.
For more information about PDMS please talk with your Family Services Coordinator or Support Broker.
