With self-direction, you have the right to live the life you choose—regardless of age or ability—in your own home or community. At GT Independence, our job is to help make self-direction easy.
By using a financial management service (FMS) like GT, you select and hire caregivers you trust. In some states, this can include family and friends. As your FMS, we handle payroll and tax withholding for the caregivers you hire. And often, you save money when compared to other care options.
At GT, we understand that you are the expert when it comes to your long-term care. You know you best. Whether you are a person with disabilities or simply want to age at home, we’re here to support your choices. This includes deciding who comes through your front door. What schedule works best for you. How to hire, fire, and manage your own caregivers. And the right to see exactly what your self-direction budget looks like, any time you want to know.
What about administrative details like new employee paperwork, background checks, and making sure your Medicaid and Medicare funds are used as they should be? That’s on us, your FMS.
