CD PAP

York Healthcare can assist with your desire to follow the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP).

Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)

  • This Medicaid program provides services to chronically ill or physically disabled individuals who have a medical need for help with activities of daily living (ADLs) or skilled nursing services.
  • Services can include any of the services provided by a personal care aide (home attendant), home health aide, or nurse.
  • Recipients have flexibility and freedom in choosing their caregivers.
  • The consumer or the person acting on the consumer’s behalf (such as the parent of a disabled or chronically ill child) assumes full responsibility for hiring, training, supervising, and – if need be – terminating the employment of persons providing the services.

    How do I find the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program?
    Before a person can receive services, his or her doctor must send a completed Physician’s Order for Services to the local social services district, which then completes a social and nursing assessment. A nurse assessor then determines whether the recipient can appropriately participate in CDPAP, and recommends the amount, frequency and duration of services.

    Requirements of CDPAP
    Recipients must be able and willing to make informed choices regarding the management of the services they receive, or have a legal guardian or designated relative or other adult able and willing to help make informed choices.

    The consumer or designee must also be responsible for recruiting, hiring, training, supervising and terminating caregivers, and must arrange for back-up coverage when necessary, arrange and coordinate other services; and keep payroll records.
