The purpose of Service Coordination (Developmental
Services Targeted Case Management)
is to provide service coordination to individuals and families in
developing a community-based, person-centered life plan focused on individual needs and preferences. The Service Coordinator is responsible for
the overall coordination of services and resources for the person and family,
providing health and welfare assurances, and meeting federal and state
regulations and requirements for Title XIX (Medicaid) and other sources of
funding, including the Home and Community Based Services Waiver.
Individuals of all ages who meet the eligibility criteria for
intellectual disability and/or related conditions as established by NRS 433.174
and NRS 433.
Developmental Services uses a person-centered
approach in the development of the Individual Service Plan (ISP) which is the
tool that drives the service delivery to the individual served. The ISP reflects the services and supports
needed to support the person/family in reaching desired outcomes and to become
more independent, integrated into the community and capable of functioning
fully as a citizen. Items to be included
in the plan include specific goals to focus on for the coming year, methods to
be used to achieve the goals, the services to be provided to the person/family,
time frame for delivery of services, costs, and the responsibilities of each of
the team members. Services shall
maximize each individual’s independence, capabilities, and satisfaction with
services and involve a collaboration of team members.
The intent of Service Coordination is to assist recipients in gaining
access to needed medical, social, educational, housing, vocational,
transportation needs and other support services including natural
supports. Targeted Case Management is
specific to those eligible for DS services under the Medicaid State plan and
includes assessment, care planning, referral/linkage and monitoring/follow-up.
