The program is designed to be a cost effective alternative to nursing home placement and allow the participants to live in the least restrictive setting possible. The philosophy is to provide freedom of choice and preserve the dignity of the right to risk. This is accomplished by providing a variety of services above what state plan Medicaid provides in order to facilitate and maximize independence.
These prior approval services include Service Coordination, Independent Living Skills Training, Home and Community Support Services, Structured Day Program (social model), Positive Behavioral Interventions Environmental Modifications, Assistive Technology, Community Integration Counseling and more.
