Hello, I am Charlie Anderson and I am a person who is on the "big" waiver. I get residential services, day services, and community services, and also case management.
I am in favor of Unity of lndiana becoming a case management company again. They were my case managers before we had one company. I thought they provided good services and I liked that they were a small company who was easy to reach. I think they offered better services than a big company like IPMG. They were always easy to call and helped me with problems as best they could. They were always friendly and involved with me. I could call them when I needed to. I think they saw me more often when they were Unity of lndiana. I could always depend on them to do what they said they would do.
I would really like to see them be a small company again as Unity of Indiana, and I would like them to be my case management provider.

To Whom It May Concern:
Prior to there being the sole case management company for all DD Waivers, our organization worked with Unity of Indiana on a daily basis. I consider
Unity of Indiana to be one of the top case management companies we have ever worked with. They were prompt in meeting consumer needs, responsive to requests, and knowledgeable in all areas of case management.
I believe adding Unity Of Indiana to the list of approved case management companies would be of great benefit to individuals receiving services through the Waivers, as well as to providers such as Companion Care Company.

It is vital for all concerned that Independent Providers of Case Management be professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to ensuring the consumer receives the appropriate services necessary for their success and safety. Based on our former long-term personal experience with Unity of Indiana, it is with great pleasure that we submit this letter of recommendation to the FSSA - Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services recommending that Unity of Indiana be accepted as an Independent Provider of Case Management.
