The client or employer hires and manages their own employees
The client or employer is responsible for providing training to employees under the self direct option. Those employed through the self direct option are not required to complete the Personal Care Assistant (PCA) training course.
A Fiscal Intermediary (SPLLC) will handle payroll, taxes, and workers’ compensation insurance for employees providing services under the self direct option.
The client / employer will set the wages following State and Fiscal Intermediary guidelines.
Initially, there is some paperwork that must be completed. You will need to complete an employee packet provided by the Fiscal Intermediary (SPLLC) and also pass a criminal background and CNA Registry check. You will also need to work with your employer to complete any required training forms before you can begin working. Once you are approved as an employee, completing timesheets is the only ongoing paperwork requirement.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming an employee under the self direct option, please contact SPLLC by calling (207) 795-4010 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Potential employees can submit the Employment Registry Application here.
