The Arc of Tennessee ®
Self-direction & Support Brokerage
Self-direction is the act of choosing and controlling aspects of one's life. By choosing to self-direct, you are exercising your right to choose, hire and manage your personal assistant. Individuals who choose to self-direct through the TennCare CHOICES program are provided with a fiscal administrator and a support broker.
Public Partnerships, LLC is the fiscal administrator providing all payroll responsibilities. The Arc TN is the Supports Brokerage agency providing each participant with a Support Broker. The Support Broker will make sure the participants understand the principles of self-determination and how to self-direct their services; and assist them in the process of self-directing their services.
The objective of this project is to insure the success of the self-direction movement, to enhance the lives of individuals as they determine their future, design their own support plans, choose the assistance they need to lead full lives and control personal budgets for their supports.
