Fiscal Employer Agents

What is the role of a Fiscal Employer Agent?

The Fiscal Employer Agent (FEA) provides financial management services that includes managing and administering payroll and employment-related tasks for HCBS waiver participants enrolled in the self-direction option.  The FEA will assist the participant/employer of record with handling tasks such as payroll processing and tax compliance; worker’s compensation insurance; unemployment insurance; compliance with labor laws and regulations; employee verification and screening; time and attendance tracking; budgeting and financial management; and with ensuring questions from participants, support coordinator, and LDH staff are responded to in a timely manner.

The Louisiana Department of Health entered into an agreement with two Fiscal Employer Agencies (FEA) who assist participants who have 1915c Community Choices Waivers (CCW) administered by the Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS), and the Children’s Choice Waiver (CCW), New Opportunities Waiver (NOW), and Residential Options Waiver (ROW), governed by the Office for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities (OCDD).
