CONSUMER DIRECTED PERSONAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

A HOME CARE MODEL

WORTH SMILING OVER

Don’t let a stranger care for your loved ones. Hire your own caregiver, even if they’re family. CDPAP is your care the way you want it.

WHAT IS
CDPAP?

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), is a Medicaid sponsored program that allows for patients to hire their own personal caregivers. Patients or their care managers interview, hire, train, and terminate caregivers of their own choosing and Medicaid ensures they are paid for their time.


As such, CDPAP allows for family caregivers to get paid for their time caring for loved ones.

WHO IS
CDPAPdirect?

CDPAPdirect is a free service to help patients and caregivers get set up with CDPAP. We believe CDPAP to be a much smarter and safer solution when it comes to home care and we’re here to help you or your loved ones get enrolled.


We work in partnership with home care agencies throughout New York State to facilitate in payroll of the hired caregiver.

HOW DO I
GET STARTED?

Whether you meet the eligibility requirements for CDPAP or not, we can help you get started. Once you meet the requirements and have filled out the necessary forms, a nurse will visit the patients home to assess a care plan with alloted hours of care provided.

The chosen caregiver enrolls as a W-2 employee through a home care agency. Then your own personalized home care plan, provided by someone chosen by the patient can begin.

If you are currently caring for a loved one or neighbor,
you could be getting paid for your time.
