OMMP regional sponsors choose which OMMP services to offer in their areas. Consumers may be enrolled in more than one OMMP service. While most services are provided in the consumer’s home by volunteers, paid staff may also provide service. At a minimum, contact with program participants should occur monthly.
Bill-Pay service is designed for consumers who have the capacity to make decisions regarding their personal finances but need help keeping on track. Bill-pay service can be short-term (1-3 months) or long-term, to meet the consumer’s needs.
Payee service is designed for consumers who do not have capacity to manage their own federal benefits such as the Social Security and VA. Regional sponsors apply to become the payee for the consumer’s federal benefits and volunteers are appointed to manage day-to-day financial tasks.
Income Cap Trust (ICT) ICTs help people who require Medicaid services that are not eligible for Medicaid because their income exceeds the Medicaid income cap. ICTs enable consumers to become Medicaid eligible because their income is directed to a trust account that they do not control, and is not counted as a resource. Regional sponsors become the trustee for ICTs and may appoint volunteers to manage the day-to-day financial needs as outlined in the trust.
