Relocation service coordination is a type of case management to help people who want to move out of certain institutions into the community. RSC helps people plan and arrange for the services and supports they need to live in the community.
You are eligible for relocation service coordination if you meet all of these criteria:
Choose to move to a community setting
Have Medical Assistance when you receive RSC
Reside in an eligible institution, such as a nursing facility, regional treatment center, hospital or ICF/DD (intermediate care facility for persons with developmental disabilities)
Communicate with you and other necessary people to carry out the plan
Coordinate with the institution discharge planner
Develop and review a relocation plan with you
Make referrals to needed services and supports
Travel and complete documentation that is necessary to develop and carry out the plan
If you choose to move out of an institution, you or someone acting on your behalf must make a request to the locally county agency or tribe. The county will assign a case manager to visit you within 20 working days of your request and give you a list of names of relocation service coordination providers in your area.
You may also request RSC as part of a long-term care consultation (LTCC) if you are under age 65 and live in a nursing facility.
