Children’s Waiver

Per Macomb County Community Mental Health (MCCMH), “staff hired through self-determination arrangements must be qualified providers. If staff does not meet the minimum training requirements, the fiscal intermediary will not be able to pay the staff with the self-determination budget dollars. It is the responsibility of the Employer of Record and/or Managing Employer to track training.”

Please carefully review the below certification requirements for Children’s Waiver cases.

To assist the Employer of Record and/or Managing Employer, please use the below Training Grid and Training Tracking forms provided by MCCMH.

Please note that the consumer’s name or case number needs to be included and legible on all documents so that we can process them in a timely manner.
