Full Access has a database of potential providers. Providers work with our clients to assist them in achieving the goals they set for themselves. Providers work in diverse areas such as aiding clients to access the community, training clients in independent living skills, providing ongoing job support, providing respite to a client's regular caregiver, and many other areas.
To become a provider you need to fill out the Provider Packet. When you've completed the packet of information return it to the Full Access office. When you come in please bring your Driver's License/ID, your Social Security Card and your auto insurance (if applicable). The Full Access staff will take a copy of all of these. They will have another form for you to read, a mandatory abuse reporting card for you to take. We will also be available to answer any further questions.
The provider paydate is the 15th.
Providers turn in their time sheets once a month. Timesheets are due to the Full Access office by noon on the 3rd of each month. Please remember to sign as the employee and have the client (or guardian if applicable) sign as the employer.
Your employer is the client. Full Access is NOT your employer. The personal agent at Full Access assists the client in hiring you, but the choice to hire you and maintain you as an employee, is the client's. You are NOT an employee of TNT. TNtis the fiscal intermediary for the support service funds of the client's ISP.
An estimated 1.8 % of the population, or more than 59,400 Oregonians, have a developmental disability. A developmental disability is a chronic physical and/or mental impairment that occurs before a person is 22 years old, and that affects the person's abilities in at least three of the following areas: communication, capacity for independent living, economic self-sufficiency, learning, mobility, self-care and/or self-direction. Examples of developmental disabilities include cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and qualifying IQ levels identifying disability. As a result of a developmental disability the person may require lifelong supports and services. (Information provided by the Developmental Disabilities Coalition.)
The definition of a developmental disability for adults used by Oregon county developmental disability services is a disability attributable to qualifying IQ level, autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or other neurological conditions which requires training or supports similar to that required by individuals with qualifying IQ level, and the disability:
Originates before the individual attains the age of 22 years, except that in the case of qualifying IQ level the condition must be manifested before the age of 18; and
Has continued, or can be expected to continue, indefinitely; and
Constitutes a substantial disabling impact to the ability of the individual to function in society; or
Results in significant sub-average general intellectual functioning with concurrent deficits in adaptive behavior which are manifested during the developmental period. Individuals of borderline intelligence may be considered to have qualifying IQ level if there is also serious impairment of adaptive behavior. Definitions and classifications shall be consistent with the Case Management Rule Definitions 309-041-0404 (15).

Volunteers can become involved at Full Access through our advisory councils. One serves Lane County and the other serves the 4 eastern counties: Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson and Lake. The advisory councils are made up of community members who help create more opportunities for Full Access clients. They also advise staff how to improve services. New members are always considered! Please go to our Getting Involved page to fill out an application (link). Our Board of Directors generally draws its members from the advisory councils.
A personal agent (PA) works for their client to assist them in planning and developing disability-related supports so that they truly meet the client's needs. The PA assists the client in identifying dreams and goals, determining the support needs necessary to pursue and achieve those dreams and goals, and finding the resources needed to provide those supports. The PA identifies resources available and then the client prioritizes and makes the choices.
Full Access has retained the services of a fiscal intermediary to handle the payment of support services, including independent providers and family employees. This company is called TNT. They will write the paychecks to the providers that the client employs and to the services that the client uses. They are a payroll service that reports the monies used to the state. Clients also receive a statement from TNT when monies are paid out.
