Consumer Directed Services (CDS)
The Missouri CDS program is a Missouri Medicaid program that allows people who receive services from the Missouri Department of Human Services to hire and manage the people who provide their care. This nontraditional type of home care enables families to play a more proactive role in the provision of their loved one’s home care services. From selecting and hiring family members to provide their care to creating their own schedules, the Missouri CDS program provides the flexibility the consumer needs to manage their busy lifestyles and get the most out of their home care experience.

To be eligible for Missouri’s Consumer Directed Services (CDS) program, you must be eligible and active with Missouri Medicaid. You must be at least 18 years of age and have a physical disability. The CDS program provides assistance with services in the home, such as meal preparation, cleaning, and personal care. The consumer will self-direct their own care, including hiring and supervising the personal care attendant, and approving time sheets. The attendant may be a friend or family member, at least 18 years of age, but cannot be a spouse or legal guardian. The attendant must have a clean background check through the Missouri State Family Care Safety Registry before being employed by a CDS participant.

Please contact our main office to speak with our intake coordinator by calling (314) 696-2701 to get more information about the (CDS) program. Our intake coordinator will talk with you about the program, your current needs, and will gather the necessary information to get you enrolled with the CDS program.

Following our phone call we will share your information with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). A DHSS representative will then contact you to arrange a free in home consultation. This consultation will help you decide if the CDS program is right for you. They will also determine the number of Personal Care hours per day a client may receive through the (CDS) program.
