The Disabled Rights Action Committee is a case management provider for the New Choices Waiver (NCW) program sponsored by the Utah Department of Health. This program is designed to (1) help eligible persons move out of nursing facility settings and reestablish themselves in a community-based setting, and (2) help eligible assisted living residents remain in their community. The program is open to Medicaid recipients who currently live in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
“You guys are great!!!” — T.M,, Salt Lake City UT
“Considering the ‘shut down’ and other difficulties that occurred with the pandemic these past six months, DRAC did a great job in working and advocating my release from [nursing home] to get me back home to my apartment. Everyone who helped was kind and respectful. These character traits are sure appreciated by us elderly people who are sometimes nervous about what will happen. Thank you.” — P.B., South Jordan UT
“My case managers are always happy to help and have been eager to meet all of my needs. They have been pleasant to work with and have met all my needs.” — M.F., Salt Lake City UT

Our case managers help NCW participants transition into community-based care and ensure that they are able to receive the supportive services they need to live safely in a non-institutional setting. Our case managers assist our clients in determining the service options best suited to meet their needs.
We are a non-profit organization run by people with disabilities, for people with disabilities.
As a case management agency, we are a small organization and we provide our clients with a personal touch. We know how important it is for folks to be able to choose where they want to live, and we are often willing to work with individuals that other agencies have rejected. We genuinely care about our clients and their families.
We have more than two decades of experience.
We have been in business since 1993 and we have over two decades of experience in coordinating community services and negotiating with state agencies. All of our case managers carry active social work licensure.
We fight to provide our clients with the best services available.
