Why Work at ICM?
An opportunity to innovate and increase the quality of supports for people with disabilities.
The community supports system in Arkansas for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) recently experienced its biggest change in over 30 years with the implementation of managed long-term services and supports. Along with this change was the creation of a new type of managed care organization, called the Provider-led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity (PASSE), whereby provider ownership must be 51% or greater. There are currently three managed care entities responsible for managing the medical, and home and community-based services (HCBS) of ~40,000 people with IDD and behavioral health (BH) conditions.
ICM holds ownership interest with five other entities in Empower Health Solutions, one of the three PASSEs. The flexibility offered through the new system along with ICM's board membership has created a unique opportunity for our organization to drive systemic-level changes in the IDD/BH system.
As a people-driven organization, we are continuously exploring ways to enhance the quality of supports we provide and to expand our outreach. In addition to our IDD supports, autism services, and specialized foster care, we hope to expand services to people with BH conditions and aging adults in the future.
An opportunity to be a part of an exciting and progressive organization.
Working at ICM is more than a career, it's a calling. We believe that all people are equal and should have opportunities to live the lives they choose. Drawing upon the tenants of social role valorization and the human capabilities approach, we strive to support people in becoming more independent while also helping them acquire valued social roles in their communities by connecting them to new opportunities.
At ICM, we do not wait on opportunities, we create them. When we were told by a large international retailer that they wanted to hire people with disabilities, but certain skills were necessary, we built retail stores to offer prevocational training as a step towards integrated employment. When we realized that people with disabilities were struggling to find jobs in an economically depressed area of Arkansas, we purchased a pie manufacturing business and created jobs. When we discovered that many children within the foster care system have disabilities, we successfully advocated on their behalf for the creation of state-funded specialized foster care program.
At ICM, you will have an opportunity to have a positive impact on people's lives, help grow a large and dynamic organization, and cultivate your professional skills.
