Consumer Directed Services

Consumer Directed Services allows people who receive services from the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) or the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to hire and manage the people who provide their services.  The program empowers people to make personal decisions related to the delivery of personal assistance and respite services within their current home and community-based program.

Astrocare has provided Consumer Directed Services as a Financial Management Service Agency (FMSA) since 2002.  Our FMSA corporate staff have been to the DADS FMSA training conducted in Austin.  We participate in the FMSA workgroup conducted by DADS and HHSC.  Almost one half of our corporate staff has been with Astrocare for over 10 years.  Let our tenure, training and desire to exceed your expectations make a difference for you.
