A Support Coordinator is similar to a case manager and is someone who guides, mentors, teaches, and supports individuals, the elderly and individuals with disabilities, who choose to self-direct Arkansas Medicaid services through the Independent Choices program. The Independent Choices program provides an alternative to institutional care for Medicaid participants by allowing them to age in place and receive personal care home- and community-based services in their own home. These services help people live independent lives in their own homes and communities.
