Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program
That Offers Greater Independence to Recipients of Home Care
The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is a statewide Medicaid program that provides an alternative way of receiving home care services, where the consumers have more control over who provides care and how it is provided. CDPAP allows Medicaid recipients in need of personal care, home health and nursing services to recruit, hire, train, supervise and terminate their own personal assistants. Consumers are able to hire friends or certain family members to work for them, thus eliminating potential stress from language/cultural barrier issues.

What are the advantages
of being a Consumer?
Consumers receive care from people they trust
Consumers are able to make their own choices about their care and daily activities
Consumers independently recruit, hire, supervise, schedule and, if needed, dismiss Personal Assistants (PAs) of their choice
Consumers act as employers: they hire as many PAs as they deem necessary to accommodate their lifestyle
Even better, the hired PA does not need to have special certification or licensing. PA can be a friend, a neighbor or even a family member
Another special benefit of CDPAP is that PAs may perform "skilled" care that otherwise may only be performed by a nurse
