Medicaid Service Coordinators (MSC’s) assist individuals with developmental disabilities in obtaining the services and supports necessary for them to lead successful, independent lives in the community. MSC’s develop, implement and maintain Individualized Service Plans (ISP’s) which reflect the informed choices of the individual by outlining the personalized goals he/she wants and needs to achieve.
MSC’s use a person-centered approach; focusing on the needs and desires of the individuals and helping them to create a vision of a desirable future. The person-centered approach builds on an individual’s abilities and skills - concentrating on achieving goals and outcomes. MSCs assist individuals explore and achieve what they want and need in their daily lives by targeting specific activities and community services.
