Tim Carmichael, CEO & Co-Founder of GT Independence, a fiscal intermediary based in Sturgis, Michigan has recently expanded service to South Florida. Mr. Carmichael was in town on March 25 where he spoke to a capacity crowd of Geriatricians, Long-Term Care Professionals and other interested parties at Vi at Aventura. A passionate advocate of Self Determination for persons with disabilities, Mr. Carmichael stated:
“Over the last 30 years there has been great progress in acceptance and treatment of persons with disabilities but some are still denied basic choices today. At GT Independence we believe that those with disabilities and long term care needs deserve independence, freedom of choice and the ability to determine the path of their own life”.
Realizing the benefits of Self Determination and wanting to empower others with disabilities, Tim teamed up with friend David Bair in late 2004 to launch the company that would become GT Independence. Under the direction of Tim and John Carmichael, GT Independence has grown substantially and now provides fiscal/employer agent services and other financial intermediary services to over 8000 people across 4 states.
