Managed Care


The system of supports for people with developmental disabilities has evolved over the years from an institution-based system to a community-based support system based on meeting the needs of each person. This evolution was brought about by the people that we support, their family members, providers and our staff all working together.

Managed care is the next step in this important evolution, strengthening the coordination of each person’s supports, ensuring quality and challenging providers to deliver outcomes by helping people achieve their goals.

View a forum presentation about the Evolution of Supports and Services from family forums being held across the state.  Download our brochure, Managed Care:  The Evolution of Supports and Services.
