CDPAP Helps You Get The Care You Deserve

Hire Family Members Or Friends To Provide Personal Care, And Get Paid!

Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program ("CDPAP") - this program allows those eligible for medicaid to select, train and direct their own caregivers. The wonderful part about the program is that it allows the individual to hire family members and friends, thus eliminating potential stress from strangers at home as well as language barrier issues. This greatly benefits both parties. Your caregiver gets paid and you get the care and comfort you deserve, without having a stranger in your home.

Your Choice

CDPAP allows close relatives such as children become caregivers and get paid. Caregivers are not required to have certification or licensing and can administer skilled services needed, such as shots. You may switch your caregiver at any time if you are not completely satisfied with the care he/she is providing. You get to decide who cares for you and the hours that suits your habits.

Flexible Schedule

CDPAP allows you to create a schedule that best suits your needs and lifestyle. You can allocate weekly hours on a flexible day-to-day basis, rather than following a daily schedule of hours set by a third party agency. The program ultimately provides consumers with controls that many take for granted.

Getting care you trust is simple as 1 – 2 – 3

Fill out our short online form, and we will assist you with filing endless paperwork and communicating with multiple agencies. We do all we can to get you care you deserve as soon as possible.

Do you have one of these Medicaid cards?

CDPAP is a Medicaid program, so your caregiver will be paid through Medicaid. (Unfortunately, Medicare is NOT enough under current government regulations.) If you don’t have Medicaid but think you may be eligible, call 917-808-8012 to contact a partner vendor who can help.
