CD-PASS Expansion to All of Osage County
The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Services and Support (CD-PASS) service option will be expanding to all of Osage County beginning January 20, 2013.
Every Case Management agency that serves this county will need at least one Case Manager and One Case Management Supervisor who has received Consumer Directed Agent (CDA) training in order to provide Case Management services to individuals who request this service option. The ADvantage Administration Unit (AAU) has reviewed the Case Management agencies that serve this county and determined that all agencies have at least one person in both capacities to satisfy this requirement. The next CDA training session will be held in April and all Case Management agencies will be notified of the exact time and date as we get closer to the scheduled date.
All Members in Osage County who are eligible for participation and are not currently receiving the CD-PASS service option will be sent a CD-PASS brochure the week of January 2, 2012. The brochure will direct Members to call a toll free number for further information. Case Managers should be prepared to answer Member questions and transition Members to this service option on or after January 20, 2013. AAU staff will be working with Members that inquire about this service option prior to January 20, 2013 to begin completion of both the Member and employee paperwork prior to transition.
