SUPPORT COORDINATION SERVICES
Support Coordination services are services that assist participants in gaining access to needed programs and State plan services such as medical benefits assistance, social, educational and other services. The Support Coordinator is responsible for developing and maintaining the Individualized Service Plan with the participant, their family (if applicable), and other team members designated by the participant. The Support Coordinator's role consists of 4 general functions: individual discovery, plan development, coordination of services, and monitoring.
