Description: This class is designed for anyone who is first starting out in the HCS Waiver Program as a new provider and for those persons coordinating services (case management) for the individuals in the HCS Waiver Program. This class is also effective for Nursing staff who need to know how the program works overall as they are part of the coordination of services for the individuals in the program. Lastly, this is also a great session for those providing oversight and quality assurance for the program.
