What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Imagine the Possibilities is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 agency that provides residential and vocational services to individuals with disabilities. Specifically, we support individuals with diagnosis of intellectual disability, mental illness, brain injury and mobility impairments. Our current services are funded through Medicaid and reimbursement rates are ever fluctuating with changes to our payment systems. Imagine the Possibilities is currently paid on a rate structure that has not been updated since 2014. Although cost of living, vehicle insurance premiums, etc. have increased over the past 4 years, our rate has not changed. Additionally, on December 1, 2017, it was announced that Iowa’s Medicaid program would no longer cover transportation costs for person served within the rate provided by the state. With the two changes listed above, it has become even more challenging to continue to meet the needs of our individuals and provide community integrated services.
