Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is an alternative to traditional home care services. It is a self-Directed home care program available to Medicaid Eligible Consumers who are in need of home care services and are capable of directing their own care.

Consumers must be eligible for New York State Medicaid . Your Medicaid Managed care provider will conduct an assessment to determine the amount of hours you are eligible under the CDPAP program.

How does CDPAP Work?

Once your eligibility is determined as well as the hours services needed, the next step will be to find a Personal Assistant (PA). The PA(s) can almost be anyone the consumer wants:

A neighbor, friend, aide or even a family member. The PA does not have to be HHA Certified.

A parent, Spouse, or designated representative cannot be a PA. It's very import that consumer is comfortable with the individuals and that they can be trained to do the work necessary.

A Personal Assistant (PA) must:
Be at least 18 years of age.
Be legally eligible to work in the United States and have a valid Social Security number.
Be interviewed and hired by House Calls Home Care Consumer.
Provide all necessary information to House Calls Home Care to facilitate enrollment in the payroll and insurance systems.
Complete all required documents, in the manner prescribed by House Calls Home Care, with the assistance and direction of the Consumer.
Complete an annual health assessment including all locally required laboratory tests.

The consumer is responsible for scheduling their assistants. Once you designate a PA , that person will come to House Calls Home Care office to enroll as your PA.
