An Individual Support Plan (ISP) is the written details of the supports, activities, and resources that an individual, Personal Agent or Service Coordinator, and other people of the individual’s choice agree are important to or for achieving and maintaining personal outcomes.

The ISP is developed at minimum annually to reflect decisions and agreements made during a person-centered process of planning and information gathering. An ISP should be updated to reflect changes in support needs and services throughout the year as needs change or at the individual’s request. Some support needs are identified through a functional needs assessment tool while others are based on individual goals, observations, and discussion.

The manner in which services are delivered, providers, and the frequency of services are reflected in an ISP. The ISP is the individual's plan of care for Medicaid purposes and reflects whether services are provided through a waiver, state plan, or natural supports.
