A Brief History of Options

What is the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program

You are probably asking yourself the question many have asked themselves the first time they heard about the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program, otherwise commonly referred to as the CDPAP. You are wondering if and how it affects you in particular. Basically, the program allows consumers who are self directed and or those who work for them to look into all issues of personal assistants of their own choice. What this means as for the persons you want to be personal assistants is that you can do the following with them.

These are such as the following needs with your management-research and recruit, interview and hire, manage, schedule, and supervise them, and finally oversee operations and dismiss as needed. Being such a self directed consumer, you will be able to look into your needs for the PA’s, set the goals to be met by the personnel to be chosen for the role, and control their services to ensure that they actually satisfy the set standards.

“Who qualifies?” is yet another question that will be troubling many minds as a matter of fact. Actually, you may not believe the numbers that do qualify for this program as a matter of it being tailored as a personal assistance service or program. In order to be eligible for the program a consumer has to satisfy the following raft of considerations. The number one need to fulfill is that you as the consumer should be able to make informed decisions or have a person to stand their place to make such informed decisions on their behalf. The other factor you need to look into for eligibility is that of eligibility for Medicaid. The consumer should as well be eligible for Long Term Home Care or Personal Care Services or AIDS Home Care before satisfying qualifications for CDPAP. Certification from the home health agency services is as well sufficient to settle you for eligibility for the CDPAP and apply for a personal assistants.

We also ask ourselves always what are the points of difference that actually exist between the CDPAP and the Standard Home Care Services. You will realize that the two are so similar as to be mistaken for being one when you look at the kind of the services of care that they get your loved ones put under their care. However, CDPAP differs from the other kind in the sense that it allows you as the consumer the power to choose who will be offering you care and not one assigned to you by a care giver service.
