HHSC programs offer Texans the option of self-directing their non-medical services and supports. That means you have more choice and control over the care you receive and the person who provides that care.

You recruit, select and train your caregiver. We facilitate a background check on prospective caregivers and assist you in hiring that caregiver. You manage their daily work and sign-off on their timesheet. We process your caregiver’s paycheck, withhold appropriate state and federal taxes, and process workers’ compensation insurance claims for you. We take care of the technical aspects of being an employer, while empowering you to effectively manage your employees and maintain your independence.

Consumer Direct Care Network Texas provides the CDS Service Option for the following programs though HHSC:

  • CLASS (Community Living Assistance and Support Services)
  • HCS (Home and Community-Based Services)
  • TxHmL (Texas Home Living)
  • DBMD (Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities)
