What services are available through CDCS?
The range of allowable CDCS services and supports can be tailored to meet a person’s needs. The flexibility built into CDCS allows a person to describe the services and supports in ways that are meaningful to the person. A person’s plan can include a mix of required and optional services and supports.
How can I find out more about the CDCS service?
For more information on CDCS, contact your local county agency or if enrolled in MSHO, contact your health plan.
