Consumer Directed Services

What is Consumer Directed Services (CDS)?

CDS is a program funded by Missouri Medicaid that enables people who need help at home to direct, train, and employ their own caregivers.

Most caregivers are family members or family friends. This offers the convenience of at care home with the comfort of someone you know and love. 

How do I qualify?

2. Must be able to train, direct, and employ your own caregiver - with help from us!

Is CDS right for me?

CDS is perfect for someone with Medicaid who needs help at home but wants to use someone they love.
