Fiscal Intermediary Services

A fiscal intermediary is an accountant that provides accounting and payroll services to the developmentally disabled and/or mentally ill individuals that receive services through the self-determination program administrated by the community mental health organization in their area.

Typical services provided include payroll preparation, personnel management, financial reporting, budget management and development, purchase of service payments, tax preparation, credentialing and Medicaid billing. While these services to the developmentally disabled and/or mentally ill are on the surface similar to those provided to businesses, they differ significantly due to the nuances of the tax code and the Medicaid program requirements that apply to the program recipients.
