What is the difference between the Fiscal/Employer Agent (F/EA) and the Agency with Choice models of participant-direction?
- “Fiscal / Employer Agent” model of participant direction
The participant (or authorized representative) serves as the employer of record.
- “Agency with Choice” model of participant direction
PPL serves as the employer of record, with the participant serving as the co-employer.
In the Fiscal/Employer Agent model of participant direction, the participant is the employer and the FMS provider (such as PPL) acts as the participant’s “employer agent.” The participant is the “employer of record” (sometimes called the “common law employer”) and the FMS is responsible for tasks including paying participants’ employees and withholding taxes. This model affords participants a great deal of choice and control.
Under the Agency with Choice model, the participant and the agency (such as PPL) performing FMS are co-employers of the participant’s workers. The agency is the primary employer and the participant is the secondary employer. This model is a good option for participants who would like to hire and manage their own providers but do not wish to serve as the “employer of record” or “common law employer.” The Agency with Choice model is sometimes referred to as a “co-employment” model.
For home care services to be covered by public or private sector payers, they need to be medically necessary. There are also requirements that must be fulfilled. Medical plans have different policies, and you need to communicate to find out what they cover. The Medicaid program varies depending on the state you live in.
Those services that are not covered by health insurance must pay them directly. Some home care agencies are subsidized by community groups and some receive funding from local and state government to help reduce the cost of care for patients who have no other way to pay for their care.

Other people who may qualify for Medicaid help include “categorically needy” people. This includes people who meet TANF’s income and resource requirements, but who are not receiving this benefit. (For example, some children under 21 years old, as well as certain elderly, blind or disabled individuals whose income is below certain levels).
Under federal Medicaid laws, home care coverage should include part-time nursing, home-care services, and medical supplies and equipment. According to the choices of each state, Medicaid can also cover audiology (Hearing aid services), physiotherapy, occupational and language therapy, and social health services, as well as hospice care.
