    Seven Counties Services, Inc.

    Support Broker/Case Manager
    Salary Range-  $28,451-$35,564
    Position location- Office based at 3717 Taylorsville Road, Louisville 40220


    This is a unique position that is called a "Support Broker".  Medicaid is the funding source.  Medicaid requires that Support Brokers have a degree in one of the following fields:  social work, sociology, psychology or “other human services field”.   If you aren’t sure whether your degree qualifies, please inquire.

    Support Brokers work in a specific Medicaid waiver (Michelle P. Waiver) program to complete assessments (annually), develop budgets and plans of care for children and adults with developmental disabilities who meet the "level of care" requirement for this program and also qualify for Medicaid under this waiver.  

    This job involves, among other things,  monthly client home visits, assisting clients in linking to other providers, keeping services approved for all providers, monitoring the client’s budget, and assisting with timesheet training and payroll processing (2 week cycle).

    Direct experience with persons with developmental disabilities is a strong asset, though not an absolute requirement.  Very strong communication skills (verbal and written) are critical as is good judgment, attention to details and very strong organizational skills.  Reliable transportation is a must.  We offer a flexible and supportive work environment, strong team support and training program, mileage reimbursement and competitive benefits.  

    Questions?  Please contact either Priscilla Freeman or Becky Wolf with the Developmental Services Office at Seven Counties.
