Services with PICS
PICS (Partners in Community Supports) is a Financial Management Service (FMS) and licensed service provider that offers financial and technical support for individuals and families who self-direct care. When a person self-directs, they decide how, when and from whom their services and supports will be delivered, while maintaining independence in their own homes and communities.
We have been helping people manage the financial aspect of self-directed care for more than 20 years. We currently offer services to individuals and families statewide.
PICS provides services in the following programs:
- Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS)
- Consumer Support Grant (CSG)
- Individualized Home Supports (IHS)
- Individual Private Pay
- Responsive customer service.
- Real-time financial reporting and monthly budget summaries.
- Seamless hiring process for new caregivers so they can start working soon.
- Diverse, multilingual staff and translated materials.

Managing Services with PICS
We make it easy for you through PICS Financial Management Services (FMS). Representatives have access to PICS’ online portal. The online portal is available 24/7 to submit timecards, expenses and mileage, and view spending summaries.
PICS will inform you and your Lead Agency Representative if you are expected to overspend in any area.
Upon starting services, you are assigned a Service Coordinator who will be responsible for the oversight of your budget.
