What is CDPAP?

CDPAP is a New York state Medicaid program that allows chronically ill or physically disabled individuals to choose family members or friends to be their caregivers.

What are the Benefits of CDPAP?

For individuals who are capable of self-directing their care program, CDPAP offers distinct advantages. It empowers patients to handpick caregivers, which can include family members or friends. It also allows for greater flexibility of scheduling, and gives the consumer a greater level of involvement in the day-to-day decision making process. Significantly, CDPAP does not impose any licensure requirements, which means that caregivers can perform personal care tasks that would be subject to license-restrictions when administered by a classic home health caregiver.

Is CDPAP a Good Idea for Everyone?

CDPAP can be an excellent choice for consumers who are confident that they have the ability, manpower, and resources to manage adequate care without disrupting daily routines or generating intra-family resentment or disputes. Families who do not fit this description often find that they prefer the reliability, convenience, and professionalism of the traditional home health care route.

Am I Eligible?

To be eligible for CDPAP, individuals must satisfy the following criteria:

- Must be eligible for Medicaid. If you need to register we can help.
- Must be eligible for or receiving home care services or participating in a long term health care program.
- Must be willing and able to participate in the selection, supervision, evaluation, and dismissal of the - - Personal Assistant (PA).​
- Must be willing and able to direct the Personal Assistant in required work tasks or have a designated representative willing to do so on behalf of the individual.

“Thank you Elite for your superb service in sending aides for my 107-year-old mother. Each aide shows true care and attention that reflects their fine training. They are trustworthy, responsible and compassionate, and really understand the frailties and needs of the people they care for. Thank you for providing excellent care and attention for my mother.”
