Innovative Health Services focus on providing services for: In-Home, CDS, and Respite Care.




What is Consumer Directed Services?

CDS offers you the opportunity to direct your own attendant care (and in some programs nursing and therapies). You become the employer and are responsible for recruiting, training, managing and firing your attendants. You choose a CDS agency, like us, to provide you with initial training on your responsibilities and on being an employer. We continue to give you ongoing support. We do your payroll, file federal and state employer taxes for you, and do your quarterly and annual employer tax returns. We also report to you and your case manager or service coordinator on a quarterly basis letting you know what hours you have used.

We support the CDS option in all of Missouri's long term care programs.
