From The Arc of Ohio:

This program is uniquely suited for people living with family or on their own. The Family Choice Program is a unique, self-directed program that offers people with developmental disabilities and their families the control of recruiting Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) and in-home coordination of services through the SELF, Level 1, and IO waivers.

As the agency provider of record, The Arc of Ohio assumes the hiring and training of DSPs while also providing oversight and responsibility for certification, compliance, waiver billing, workers’ compensation, and payroll.

In conjunction with a designated family representative (referred to as the Family Coordinator in HPC situations) or the OSL contractor, The Arc of Ohio oversees DSP compliance in regards to service documentation submission, incident reporting, and on-going staff training.
