Self Directed Services
The role of Perspectives Self-Directed Program is that of a "fiscal intermediary" -- a private company contracted to provide payroll services based on the individual’s budget, financial monitoring and reporting based on regulations and requirements. This includes paying your employees and/or your approved invoices, billing DDD for reimbursement, and keeping you up to date on your spending.
The Self-Directed fiscal intermediary model allows individuals over the age of 21 who have BHDDH funding to take control of all support resources, from decision-making authority to service delivery. All individuals participating in the Self-Directed Program are legally considered “Sole Proprietors”, each having their own Employment Identification Number (EIN) provided to them by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) via the SS-4 application process. The people that work for the Sole Proprietor are employees of the Sole Proprietor.
