Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)
To be eligible for this program, an individual must:
- Be Medicaid-eligible as determined by his/her county department of Social Services
- Be eligible for home care services, personal care services, or private duty nursing
- Require some or total assistance with one or more home care, personal care, or skilled nursing service
- Have a stable medical condition, and
- Be self-directing or have a designated representative who is willing and competent to assume the roles and responsibilities that go with the program.
A self-directing consumer is:
“a consumer who is capable of making choices regarding the consumer’s activities of daily living and the type, quality and management of his or her consumer directed personal assistance; understands the impact of these choices; and assumes responsibility for the results of these choices.”
Since the consumer or their designee assumes employer responsibilities, (to recruit, interview, hire, train, supervise, and terminate if necessary) he/she must be capable of performing these duties. Directing the personal assistant and completing required paperwork are core competencies of the consumer.
Who provides the paycheck?
As a fiscal intermediary in Sullivan County, Wellness Home Care guarantees payment to the personal assistant, and then bills the Managed Care Organization/Medicaid for reimbursement.
