MI CARE℠

Our self-directed services “SDS” model MI CARE℠ in accordance with the Michigan Self-Determination Initiative incorporates a set of concepts and values which underscore a core belief that people who require support from the public health system as a result of a disability should be able to define what they need in terms of the life they seek, should have access to meaningful choices, and control over their lives. Michigan’s Self-Determination Initiative is aiming for major system change which will assure that services and supports for people are not only person-centered but person defined and person-controlled. MI CARE℠ is based on four principles. These are:

Freedom: The ability for individuals, with chosen family and/or friends, to plan a life with necessary supports, rather than purchase a program;

Authority: The ability for a person with a disability to control a certain sum or dollars in order to purchase these supports, with the backing of a social network or circle of friends, if needed;

Support: The arranging of resources and personnel – both formal and informal – so to assist a person with a disability to live a life in the community, rich in community associations and contributions, and;

Responsibility: The acceptance of a valued role in a person’s community through employment, affiliations, spiritual development, and general caring for others, as well as accountability for spending public dollars in ways that are life-enhancing.

MI CARE℠ is about choice and control. It is about giving over decision-making authority to people with disabilities, with the support of their family and friends. It is about freedom. MI CARE℠ asserts that a person should not have to lose their freedom because they require support from the public sector.

Person-Centered Planning & Advocacy

In accordance with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services “MDHHS” our Virtual CARE Nurse(s)℠ view each patient as an individual with specific and unique circumstances and will approach case planning holistically, from a person-centered, strength-based perspective.

A person-centered plan will be developed for all Medicaid beneficiaries receiving services. Person-centered plans are completed upon new patient enrollment and updated as often as necessary but minimally at the six-month review and annual reassessment. The person-centered plan directs the movement and progress toward goals identified jointly by the patient and the Virtual CARE Nurse℠ .

Person-centered, strength-based planning focuses on:

  • Patient as decision-maker in determining needs and case planning.
  • Patient strengths and success, rather than problems.
  • Patients as their own best resource.
  • Patient empowerment.

Part of our role includes being an advocate for our patients. As an advocate, the Virtual CARE Nurse℠ will:

  • Assist the patient to become a self-advocate.
  • Assist the patient in securing necessary resources.
  • Inform the patient of options and educate him/her on how to make the best possible use of available resources.
  • Promote services for patients in the least restrictive environment. Participate in community forums, town meetings, hearing, etc. for the purpose of information gathering and sharing.
