The best care begins with building a strong support system.

Self-determination puts you in charge of choosing and managing Direct Care Professionals and scheduling the supports and services you want. SequoiaSD provides clerical, administrative, and payroll support that makes getting your services easier, so you can focus on what makes life enjoyable and rewarding.

We support two of the three models of Fiscal Management Services (FMS). If you have questions about the differences in models, you can check out the FMS Comparison Chart.

Green-house
Bill Payer

The Bill Payer model is designed for Participants that choose not to employ Direct Care Professionals and works with SequoiaSD for the administrative needs in the supports and services included in their individual Program Plan (IPP).

SequoiaSD provides the following services for the Bill Payer model:

  • Processing payments for the supports and services listed in the Participant’s IPP
  • Maintaining complete records related to your services
  • Communicating with your Care Manager and others to assist you as your needs change
  • Supporting compliance with State and Federal rules and regulations
Green-hands

The Sole-Employer model provides the Participant with the most control. The Participant is the direct employer of Direct Care Professionals and has full responsibility and liability for their Direct Care Professional.

  • Coordinating enrollment paperwork for all Direct Care Professionals and Participants
