More about Structured Family Caregiver (SFC):
Structured Family Caregiving provides support, education and oversight on behalf of waiver members whose family caregiver lives in the home with the member. The service provides a community-based option of continuous care, support, and professional oversight by promoting a collaborative relationship between the waiver member, primary caregiver, the professional Personal Support Services Health Coach, and the member’s case manager. The waiver member and primary caregiver must be related biologically or by marriage but may not include legally responsible adults such as parents of minor children or un-emancipated adults or spouses of the waiver participants. Additionally, those serving as the Representative Payee as established by the Social Security Administration are also restricted from serving as family caregiver under the Structured Family Care service. (Rev. 4/2022)
The goals of this service include supporting family caregivers through health education, telephonic counseling and active coordination with care management; facilitating the waiver member’s independence in a familiar home environment; offering the option of care by a trusted family member; and supporting the family caregiver as the needs of the waiver member change. These goals are reached through a collaborative relationship between the waiver member, the caregiver, the CCSP or SOURCE case manager, medical providers and the Structured Family Caregiving provider. Effective July 1, 2019, all requests for approval of payment to a live-in family caregiver will be approved only under the Structured Family Caregiver program. Any request for participation in the program must be directed to the member’s Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program (EDWP, which includes CCSP and SOURCE) case manager. If the case manager approves participation based on the member and caregiver eligibility detailed below, they will authorize this service as part of the member’s service plan. NOTE: An EDWP member must have current Georgia Medicaid eligibility prior to approval for the SFC program.
