Self-Direction for Dually Eligible Individuals Utilizing Long-term Services and Supports (LTSS)

Wednesday, August 21, 2019, 12:00 - 1:30 PM ET

Register for the August 21 webinar

Self-direction, or consumer-direction, allows consumers to direct and manage their personal care services. It is based on the idea that people who receive LTSS know their needs best. Self-direction promotes personal choice and control over who provides services and how services are provided. Evidence shows that participants in self-directed LTSS programs are more satisfied and have better outcomes than people receiving agency-based services.

Offering consumers the choice to direct their own services can present challenges for health plans. This webinar will discuss the importance of care coordinators, person-centered care planning, and assisting members with management tasks required for self-direction for plans seeking to support consumers in directing their own care.
