CDPAP Program Provider in Delaware County, NY

What is CDPAP?

CDPAP stands for the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program in Delaware County, NY, a groundbreaking Medicaid initiative in New York State that empowers individuals to select, hire, and oversee their home care workers, even allowing the employment of friends and family.

Understanding CDPAS

CDPAS refers to the services offered within the CDPAP program. While the terminology may differ, they encompass the same program offerings.

Eligibility Criteria

To qualify for CDPAP, you must:

  • Be a Medicaid recipient.
  • Require home care services.
  • Be capable of self-directing your care or appointing a responsible individual to manage it.

Additional factors may affect eligibility, but meeting these criteria is your starting point. We invite you to reach out to us for a personalized eligibility consultation.

Remember that enrollment in CDPAP is facilitated through your local Department of Social Services or Medicaid plan, not through Home Care For Adults Inc.

Enrollment in Medicaid Managed Care

Typically, enrollment in a Medicaid Managed Care plan is required. The advantage is the availability of various plan options, each with its own benefits. Explore the range of Managed Long-Term Care (MLTC) plans to discover the one that best suits your needs.

The Application Process

Initiating a CDPAP application involves several key steps, including nursing assessments, the completion of consumer-specific forms (find our comprehensive list on the CDPAP Forms page), and selecting your preferred caregiver.

If this seems overwhelming, don’t worry. We’re here to simplify each step and guide you through the enrollment process. Remember that the enrollment process must be completed with your local Department of Social Services or Medicaid plan.

Permissible Caregivers

Within the CDPAP program, nearly anyone legally authorized to work can become a caregiver, including many relatives and friends. There are specific nuances regarding living arrangements with caregivers and employing family members, so please continue reading for detailed information on those circumstances.

Employing a Family Member

The CDPAP program offers the convenience of selecting a family member as your paid caregiver, reducing the stress often associated with receiving care from unfamiliar agency staff.

Selecting Family Members for Care

Most family configurations are accommodated within CDPAP. Parents can hire their children, siblings can care for each other, but spouses cannot hire each other. The age of the child and the required care may influence whether parents can act as paid caregivers.

Certification and Training

Caregivers in CDPAP do not require certification or licensing. Training is provided by you, the consumer, or your designated representative.

CDPAP and Medicare

CDPAP is a Medicaid-based initiative and is not covered by Medicare. However, individuals with both Medicare and Medicaid may qualify, and our Medicaid specialists are available to assist with Medicaid applications if needed.

The Advantages of CDPAP

Choosing CDPAP home care offers several advantages over traditional home care models, such as the opportunity for close relatives to be compensated caregivers, the absence of formal certification requirements, and flexibility in care management.
