CDPAP gives consumers the freedom to choose their caregivers or home care aides, compensates caregivers for their hard and attentive work, and mitigates the insecurity of using unfamiliar professionals from a home health care agency.
As the name of the program indicates, it gives consumers greater freedom in making vital and lasting healthcare decisions.
CDPAP is entirely covered by Medicaid and creates no additional expense for the consumer. The most outstanding value CDPAP offers is that it allows home health aides to choose from family members, friends, neighbors, or others who may already be doing caregiving work. CDPAP provides training for the selected home health aide once you’ve completed a CDPAP application.
