The Resource Center for Independent Living is excited to announce a new flexible schedule option for employees! Employees may be eligible to work either Monday-to-Friday 8am-4pm OR extended hours with every other Friday off.
Self-Direction is a program funded by the State and Medicaid that allows individuals the ability to live independently in their own homes and the ability to integrate into the community. Each participant as well as each budget are unique. Self-Direction is completely participant-driven. Participants and their Planning Team decide what services will best suit their needs.
The Case Coordinator will maintain a caseload of participants and administer their services in the Self-Direction Program. The successful candidate will be expected to:
- Maintain open communication with all parties on the assigned caseload, return calls and emails within 24 hours to participants, their workers, Start-Up/Support Brokers, Designated Representatives and/or internal staff using exceptional customer service;
- Maintain required Medicaid documentation associated with the provision of services for the assigned caseloads in a timely, accurate and legible manner;
- Review monthly budget reports for accuracy and submit monthly invoices and reimbursements for payment as needed; and
- Process weekly timesheets for support workers as needed.
