Case Management Agency
This agency is contracted with HHS to assist with accessing non-waiver funds so that CLASS funds are only used as a last resort.
Texas Health and Human Services maintains CLASS Choice Lists for applicants, individuals or legally authorized representatives to use when choosing a Case Management Agency and Direct Services Agency. The lists are maintained for each CLASS catchment area and are updated monthly, or as needed.
