Improving Quality Outcomes: The Independent Contractor and Agency with Choice Models

June 4, 2014 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Eastern Standard Time


Description

Soreo, an Arizona based provider, has realized significant benefits (for the agency and its 900 direct care workers) by implementing an Agency with Choice model, transitioning their employees to independent contractors. Join representatives from Soreo and their strategic vendor, Contractor Management Services, as they share Soreo’s experience and offer resources you can use to realize your own competitive edge. Among the benefits:

  • Increase of approximately 20% in income and reduced taxes for DCWs,

  • Elimination of limits on the number of hours worked, which renders the Companionship Exemption moot,

  • Insurance coverage available under the Occupational and Accident insurance, which Soreo believes is superior to Workers Compensation, and

  • Direct Care Workers are now business owners.

Soreo will also highlight how the Agency with Choice model, which gives consumers a more active role in decisions about the quality and type of type of service they want and the selection of the direct care worker.

An extensive question and answer session will follow the presentation. Attendees are encouraged to also see the ANCOR IC FAQ sheet which provides additional resources and tools.

The follow on to this session is Part II: Implementing the Independent Contractor and Agency with Choice Models. Separate registration required.
