Questions About Financial Management Services

 

What are financial management services (FMS)?

 

In general, financial management services cover everything related to paying your attendants. This includes processing their timesheets, withholding and paying taxes, workers’ compensation requirements and more.

 

Our financial management services give you the freedom to hire your own attendants without having to worry about the financial details. We give you a Participant-directed payroll management solution that is easy and fast.

What is a goods and services payments provider?

 

ACES$ is also a goods and services payments provider. That means when you need goods and services to live independently, we take care of purchasing and reimbursing them.

What is a fiscal agent (non-profit)?

 

If you are on a Medicaid waiver we serve, and ACES$ is your FMS provider, we are your fiscal agent. As your fiscal agent, ACES$ takes care of everything related to paying your attendants, also called caregivers.

 

When you hire a caregiver, you become that caregiver’s Employer. As an Employer, you have to pay your attendants, make sure to take out the appropriate taxes, file the taxes and all the other payroll requirements.

 

That’s where ACES$ comes in. We become the fiscal agent and take care of all the payroll duties. We ensure the right taxes are taken out and filed. We ensure you meet the tax requirements as well as workers’ compensation, when applicable.

 

ACES$ is unique in the financial management world because we are also a non-profit Center for Independent Living. That makes us the largest fiscal agent that’s non-profit as well.

 

Being non-profit, we can focus on you — not on making a profit. That means you get the best Client care from our dedicated team. We go above and beyond for you because you are our number-one priority.
