Consumer and Consultant Experiences in the Florida Consumer Directed Care Program


This report describes the implementation of consumer directed care by synthesizing information from in-person discussions with program staff, a mail survey of program consultants, telephone interviews with consumers in the treatment group, and program records. It discusses the program's goals and features, the ways beneficiaries managed their program responsibilities and took advantage of increased flexibility, and the degree to which beneficiaries were satisfied with the program. (Other reports from the evaluation estimate the program's impacts on beneficiaries, their caregivers, and public costs; describe the types of beneficiaries and workers who chose to participate in the demonstrations; and explain demonstration implementation and program operations in greater detail.)
