Case Management assists individuals who have a brain injury diagnosis and are eligible for either a Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI) or Brain Injury (BI) Waiver. Waivers, such as BI and CADI, are funding sources from the government that provide the opportunity for individuals to live in the community rather than a nursing home or institutionalized setting.
Case managers at the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance are contracted by various counties in Minnesota to monitor and implement a system of support for individuals. Working closely with each participant, the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance case managers use the Waiver funds to coordinate a tailored service plan, identify and connect with service providers, and regularly review the support plan in place to ensure that each individual receives the highest level of customized service possible. The Waiver funds can be used to pay for services and supports such as independent living skills, homemaking, personal care services, supported employment, transportation, behavioral services, or day program fees. Each person's needs and vision of a better quality of life is unique, so, accordingly, each plan of support organized by Case Management is different.
If you'd like to see if you or someone you know is eligible for a Waiver, please contact the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance for more information at 612-378-2742 or 800-669-6442.
The Case Management program also provides Relocation Service Coordination (RSC) within contracted counties.
