Now that you have completed some homework, be sure to share what you’ve done with your circle of support and your case manager. By doing this, you can make sure that your ISP reflects your values and preferred lifestyle. By creating an ISP that reflects the person you are, everyone can work together to help you achieve your dreams and goals.
You can use this space to take notes or write down important reminders for yourself.
The Individual Plan
Once you have determined what support services you need through the Individualized Service Plan (ISP) process, have been determined eligible for “The Waiver”, and have chosen your service provider(s), you will meet with the service provider(s) to create your Individual Plan (IP).
You play the primary role in creating your IP. The IP will help your service provider(s) to know what service(s) and activities are needed to help you to reach your goal(s). The IP will outline the goals and activities that the service provider will assist you with to help you to reach your goal(s) as identified in your ISP.
The IP is based on the goal(s) and activities identified/reflected in your ISP that you create with your case manager and circle of support.
“The Waiver” requires the service providers to follow standards for the IP. More detailed information on the IP requirements is listed on the next page. 11
11 The detailed IP requirements information is taken directly from the Department of Human Services H&CBS Medicaid DD/MR Waiver Provider Contract, Scopes and Standards section.
