Cash & Counseling provides a flexible monthly allowance (based on the consumer’s care plan or claims history) that consumers can use to hire their choice of workers, including family members, and to purchase other goods & services. A demonstration was implemented in three states-Arkansas, Florida, & New Jersey. Based on their experiences, this paper draws lessons on designing & implementing a Cash & Counseling program, to provide information useful to states thinking of adopting such a program.
