What are Financial Management Services (FMS)?

Financial Management Services (FMS) are for people who want to self-direct their services through Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) or the Consumer Support Grant (CSG). CDCS and CSG programs give people flexibility and control over their service planning and supports.  They help people live independently in their homes and communities. 

Best Care FMS assists with budget management and supports participants in their role as the employer of their workers.  Participants often use CDCS or CSG to purchase goods and services and hire family and friends. Participants directly employ their workers, and as the employer, have the ability to set pay rates for their employees and offer other employee benefits.
