Self-Directed Services and Fiscal Intermediaries
Self-Direction, or Self-Directed Services (SDS), gives you the chance to choose your own services so you can live the life you want. When you self-direct your services, you have increased flexibility to choose the right supports for you, the staff you want to work with, and a schedule that works best for you. This gives you more control over how you want to structure your life. All participants who choose SDS services must choose a Fiscal Intermediary (FI) who will support them in managing their funds through the self-direction budget.
