Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)

  • This Medicaid program provides services to individuals who are chronically ill or have a physical disability and need medical assistance with their activities of daily living or require skilled nursing services.
  • This programs can include any services provided by a personal care aide, home health aide, or nurse.
  • Recipients have the flexibility and freedom in choosing their caregivers
  • The patient or person acting on their behalf assumes full responsibility for hiring, training, supervising, and if need be, terminating the employment of the individual providing the services.

How Do You Find the CDPAP?

Before a person can receive services, their doctor must send a completed Physician’s Order for Services to the local social services district. A nurse representative then determines whether the recipient can appropriately participate in the program, and recommends the amount, frequency, and duration of services.

Requirements of CDPAP

Patients must be able and willing to make informed decisions regarding the service they receive or have a legal guardian or representative to help make informed choices.
