The Whole Person Consumer Directed Services

Consumer Directed Services in Missouri
The Consumer Directed Services program helps people with significant physical disabilities obtain assistance with personal care and daily activities to maintain or increase their independence. This includes services in the home such as meal preparation, cleaning and personal hygiene. The cost of these services is covered by Missouri Medicaid (MO HealthNet) and is administered by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). The Whole Person contracts with DHSS to provide case management and payroll services for the program.

The goal is to provide individuals more personal autonomy in determining how best to meet their own care needs. In other words, you have choices — including hiring and supervising your attendant and approving time sheets for payment.

Who is Eligible?
To be eligible for Missouri’s Consumer Directed Services (CDS) program, you must:
– have active Missouri Medicaid
– be at least 18 years of age
– have a physical disability and/or chronic medical condition such as diabetes that interferes with your ability to care for yourself without assistance
– have the desire and ability to self-direct your own care and employ your own attendant
