Contact your service coordinator and tell them you want to use Participant-Directed Services. Discuss which IPP services you want to be provided through a participant-directed service model.

Your service coordinator can help you find a Financial Management Service (FMS) to handle payroll, taxes, and reporting.  Ask your FMS what rules you must follow as an employer.

The regional center will approve these services with the FMS for the amounts specified in your IPP.

All other services in the person’s served IPP will continue to be provided by regional center vendors.
