Consumers in the PASSPORT Program have the choice of either the traditional option where services are provided through agency or non-agency professional caregivers, or the consumer-directed option, where services are provided by individual providers such as friends, neighbors or some relatives.  In the consumer-directed option, the consumer is the "employer of record" for individual providers and is responsible for hiring, firing, training, and completing all necessary tax forms and payroll duties for these workers.  A Fiscal Management Service is provided to assist the consumer with the legal and financial aspects of the program. Staff at the AAA7 help consumers understand their options through the PASSPORT Program so that they can make the best decision that will support their health and independence.
