Consumer Choices Option (CCO) is an Iowa Medicaid program for Iowans with disabilities and aging Iowans. CCO allows individuals on Home and Community Based Services
(HCBS) waivers more flexibility over how their services are provided. It gives the member
control over their Medicaid waiver dollars so they can develop a plan to meet their needs by directly hiring their own employees or purchasing their services. An
Independent Support Broker (ISB) will help the CCO member develop a budget based on the monthly funds approved by their case manager.
To participate in the CCO program, you must live in the state of Iowa, receive Medicaid funding through an HCBS waiver and be referred by a case manager.
Veridian Fiscal Solutions is in partnership with the Consumer Choices Option program as the Financial Management Service (FMS) provider for CCO. Veridian Fiscal Solutions has been in partnership with Iowa Medicaid and the Consumer Choices Option program since 2007.
