NOTICE OF CHANGE FOR NEW CAREGIVERS
As of November 1, 2018, there are new requirements for all new caregivers per Macomb County Community Mental Health.
Click here to view the new requirements.
Our goal is to provide dependable Fiscal Intermediary services to individuals with special needs who choose to live a Self-Determined life.
What is a Fiscal Intermediary? A Fiscal Intermediary (FI) is a person or agency who helps you manage your budget and pay your bills if you are using a self-determination approach. The FI will use the funds from your self-determination budget to pay your staff, and will report the services they provide to Community Mental Health.
An FI will pay your service/support bills with money from Medicaid, MCCMH, or other sources. Your fiscal intermediary will pay for things that are authorized in your Person-Centered Plan and your self-determination budget. You will receive monthly statements so you and your support team can see how you are doing with your budget. As the business owner you’ll avoid the pressure of tax season as we prepare your taxes.
When you hire your own staff, you must follow state and federal laws as an “employer of record.” Hiring a Fiscal Intermediary will help you with these things and insure that your employee/caregiver has all the certifications needed to be a part of your staff.
