NYS Medicaid Services Support Broker

Offering the MOST experienced broker service in NY State for the OPWDD People First Waiver, having written and/or consulted on in over 158 plans thus far! This is the HCBS Medicaid Waiver that funds a Person-Centered plan through a program offered by OPWDD known as Self-Determined Services. Confused or want to know more?  Just email me and I will walk you through at no cost to you. Self-Directed Services (SDS) is an individualized, self-determined service that is a partnership among the participant, OPWDD, and others who provide supports and services to the person. The person has authority over his/her budget and may choose who to hire and manage his/her employees; choose where they want to live and with whom, receive a housing stipend; transportation costs, and even community activities, and health club memberships. The Federal and State Governments combine to provide a person with ASD the monies that are allocated to that individual based on their abilities in each area of their live. Because each person with Autism is different , each person gets an individualized Personal Resource Account from which to draw upon. With my help as support broker, you will get the help you need most. 

 NYS Guardianship Document Prep Services

The first step in the process is to talk first with your planning team that consists of yourself, your parents/family members or family friends, your doctor and your service providers.  Together, they can help you make the right decision.  Then contact me for the document preparation step, saving you hundreds of dollars.  If you do choose Guardianship please note, that I also ensure that the dignity of a person whom you are seeking the guardianship is upheld. That means that I will work with you to file a first and secondary stand-by guardian(s) with your child's choices kept at the forefront, as well as file a Letter of Intent, Health Care Directives, and other documents that should be written to ensure a full and person-centered plan is in place for the individual. Guardianship is intended to preserve someone's rights, not have them taken away.    I offer this service, as well as Notary Public service for all document preparation at a very reasonable cost.

Autism Advocacy Services

Here are some of the questions I will address in our Person-Centered Planning Sessions to get you on track:
1.  Is your child or adult child receiving OPWDD services? If so, what are they?
2.  Is your child or adult child able to receive any government funds or services like Medicaid, Medicare, SSI, SSDI? DSS, SNAP? 
3.  What will your child's life look like as an adult child?  Where will he/she live?
It seems everybody's expert these days on autism, but are they?  Can you trust them?  I'm a parent too and I will provide you with hope and peace of mind.
