Frequently asked questions

What is the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program?

Under New York’s CDPAP program, patients can self-direct their home health care and choose a caregiver that they know and trust. Instead of the discomfort of a hired stranger, you can be appointed and paid to give your loved one the care they need.

Who is Eligible For CDPAP?

Any patient who qualifies for Medicaid and requires home care, personal care or skilled nursing services, can sign up for the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP).

What are the Requirements to Qualify?

To be a caretaker for your loved one, you must be 18 years or older and be able to legally work in the United States.

Does the CDPAP Require Any Kind of Special Training or Schooling?

No. The caregiver will not need any kind of formal training, license or certificate to be employed. Any skills that might be needed for this opportunity will be taught directly by the patient.

How Many Hours of Home Care Can a Client Receive?

This is highly individualized. Each client will have a representative from his/her insurance company meet with him/her to determine, based on the needs, how many hours of home care he/she is eligible for.

What If the Patient Does Not Have Medicaid?

Since CDPAP is a Medicaid program, patients must have Medicaid in order to enroll.
