FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you have additional questions, we'll answer them.

What is CDPAP?

CDPAP is a Medicaid program available throughout New York State. It allows eligible home care patients to hire, compensate, train, direct, and terminate caregivers of their choice. The most notable aspect of CDPAP is that it allows patients to hire family caregivers, like children, and secure pay for them.

Can I Hire My Family Caregiver?

Yes. If you have a family caregiver who has been providing your care so far, CDPAP makes it easy to “hire” them officially and secure pay. If you have a family caregiver you’d like to hire and train, CDPAP makes that process easy as well. The only restriction is that you cannot hire a caregiver who is also your “designated representative” and that the caregiver must be older than 18.

Who is Eligible for CDPAP??

To be eligible for CDPAP, you must meet the following requirements:

1. You must be covered by Medicaid
2. You must require home care services
3. You must be self-directing your care, or have someone else directing your care for you

How Do I Enroll in CDPAP?

Enrolling in CDPAP requires you to fill out required paperwork and meet with a nurse to determine your home care needs. During this meeting, the nurse will make a recommendation about how many hours of home care you’re eligible for. Once care guidelines are established, you can get to work finding, hiring, and working with the personal assistant of your choice.

No! In fact, this is part of what is so wonderful about CDPAP. You just choose the caregiver with whom you feel most comfortable, and CDPAP will provide comprehensive assistance to train and onboard your new assistant.
