Your Service Coordinator helps plan services. Planning occurs at meetings.
You decide who is on your ISP team. It must include you, your Service Coordinator, and any DD providers who serve you. If you have a guardian, he or she is on the team. You can invite other family, friends, or organizations.
This meeting is with your ISP team. There are at least two meetings each year.
Funding is based on your needs. An assessment determines your Individual Budget Amount (IBA). You use your IBA to purchase services.
Participants and guardians can access Therap, the web-based case management system.
Being eligible does not mean you will receive funding for services right away. There is not currently enough funds available for all requests. Once eligible, you will be placed on the wait list. DD services will be offered when funding is available.
