Medicaid Home Care: The Consumer in Charge


Individuals who have an aide in place when entering the Medicaid home care program may continue to employ that person within the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP). The program is available for elderly and disabled individuals who are able to direct their own care or have someone who can assist them in providing that direction. CDPAP provides an opportunity to obtain government financial assistance while maintaining a level of independence that is not possible when a government agency takes responsibility. Available services range from skilled private-duty nursing to personal-care or home-health-aide services by paraprofessionals. The recipient or the person acting on the recipient’s behalf assumes full responsibility for hiring (and firing), training and supervising the person or persons providing the services.
