Developmental Disability Case Management

Case Management is the first step in determining the services that are right for a consumer. Each consumer will be assessed and a individualized, person-centered plan will be developed. The Plan of Care will take into account consumer goals and the steps needed to reach those goals. Each plan will promote choice, community experiences, employment and personal satisfaction.

Case Management provides the collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for individuals diagnosed with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities. Case Management includes screening, assessment/risk management, development of a person centered plan of care, referrals to key services providers for specialized services and/or adaptive equipment, implementing service arrangements, and monitoring of services to provide quality cost effective outcomes.

The Case Manager provides individualized service delivery based on a comprehensive assessment that is used to develop the service plan. The plan is developed with the individual and their support team and reflects their choices and preferences. The goal is to empower the individual and ensure they are involved in every aspect of the planning and service delivery.

Medicaid Waiver Programs

In many cases, financial assistance from the Commonwealth of Kentucky is available to those diagnosed with an Intellectual or Developmental Disability, those who have a Serious Mental Illness and others.

The Michelle P Waiver:

The Michelle P Waiver Program is a home- and community-based waiver program of the Kentucky Medicaid program developed as an alternative to institutional care for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
