Compass Project: ONA Case Manager Toolkit

Resources for Case Managers who work with the ONA

The Oregon Needs Assessment (ONA) determines whether a person is eligible for their qualified Personal Support Worker (PSW) to receive enhanced or exceptional pay rates. 

The resources on this page are for case managers who work with ONA to assess a person's functional needs and determine their level of care.

Resources for annual ONA assessment

Case managers are an important part of the assessment process and need to know how to use the assessment results to help build a good Individual Support Plan (ISP).

During the transition to ONA, there will be times when the old assessment tools will need to be used for setting rates and service levels. For now, case managers will continue to use current processes and tools to determine the number of hours, service rates and identify risks.
