Fiscal Conduit Services

Fiscal Conduit Services give you, the consumer, maximum flexibility and self-direction.

Summit Fiscal Agency offers Fiscal Conduit services for self-directed programs for individuals receiving Consumer/Family Support Grant (CSG/FSG) or funding under the following waiver types in most counties: Developmental Disability (DD) waiver, Elderly (EW) waiver, Community Alternatives Care (CAC), Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). We also offer Fiscal Conduit Services to enrollees of Minnesota Disabilities Health Options (MnDHO), Minnesota Senior Health Options (MnSHO).

In keeping with the philosophy behind self-directed services, consumers can manage the purchase of goods and services in the ways that make the most sense for them. Summit Fiscal Agency’s responsibility under this model is largely focused on billing as the enrolled Medical Assistance provider, and verifying documentation of allowable expenditures. Summit Fiscal Agency provides reimbursement after services rendered.

Fiscal Conduit Services provides opportunity for the responsibilities of the Common Law Employer to remain with the consumer. This may include the management of all aspects of the household business including tax liability, staff payroll and withholding, employment insurances, and payment to outside service providers and vendors. Summit Fiscal Agency provides tracking, monitoring and reporting consumer use of waiver or grant allocations.

Summit Fiscal Agency is committed to providing the highest quality of service to its consumers. We believe that the integrity of self-directed services includes provider systems that effectively implement and monitor the procedures and practices that support consumers and their representatives.
