The Attendant Services Program (ASP) supports personal care services for adults with a “severe and permanent disability” who need physical assistance with activities of daily living (such as bathing, getting dressed and eating) to remain in their homes. Applicants must be able to direct their own attendant care services. Payroll and employer services occur through a Fiscal Employer Services Agency called ARIS Solution.
Coverage for Attendant Services is through Vermont Medicaid. People who are not eligible for Medicaid may be eligible for General Funds coverage, if funds are available.
NOTE: In July 2014 spending for General Funds Attendant Services was frozen until further notice.
