  1. What Is CDPAP?: Everything You Need to Know... As the people you love grow older, finding ways to take care of them that don’t compromise your life gets more and more difficult. But the fact remains that there will come a time where you can’t handle all the care alone, and many elderly people find it damaging to their health to get uprooted from their homes into a nursing care facility. WHAT IS CDPAP? CDPAP (or the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program) is a special state program run out of New York that allows you to bring personal assistants in to take care of elderly people from their homes. The program is covered in full under Medicaid, so you won’t have to cough up extra cash for it. BENEFITS OF CDPAP So besides avoiding extra costs thanks to Medicaid, another benefit of CDPAP is that it allows you to select a caregiver that the person feels comfortable with and won’t upset their daily routine. Since getting qualified to be a caregiver under CDPAP requires no official medical licenses, any family member or friend can do it sans a few exceptions. CDPAP VS. NORMAL HOME CARE CDPAP has several advantages over trying to hire an outside attendant to perform home care. For starters, the turnover rate for home care providers is staggering (there was a median 82% turnover rate in 2019), which means you’ll likely have to go through the hiring process constantly. GOING THROUGH THE APPLICATION PROCESS To apply for CDPAP, you’ll need your doctor to fill out a special form that attests to your need for home care. After that, you may have to undergo other assessments to confirm what the form says. You will also need your doctor to fill out a PCP Transfer form if moving to CDPAP means you would be switching from a pre- existing health program. BRINGING THE FAMILY TOGETHER And there you have it! Now that you know the answers to questions like “What is CDPAP?” and “What benefits does it have?”, you’re ready to get out there and help apply it to yourself or a loved one today! It’s also important to note that CDPAP will assign different plans based on the patient’s condition. These plans can require additional forms to pop up. But what if you still have more questions about CDPAP or want to start applying for it today? In that case, give us a shout and find out how we can help! https://fafhhc.com/
