What is CONSUMER DIRECTED PERSONAL assistance program (CDPAP)

CD PAP is a Medicaid program that provides services to chronically ill or physically disabled individuals who have a medical need for help with activities or daily living (AD Ls) or skilled nursing services.

This is an alternative home-care program that empowers and increases control for individuals with disabilities.

Consumers have the flexibility and freedom in choosing their caregivers.  The consumer or the person acting on the consumer's behalf.  Self Directing Other (SDO), assumes full responsibility for hiring, training, supervising, and-if need be-terminating the employment of persons providing services.

CD PAP allows the consumer greater flexibility in determining a schedule to meet their own individual needs.

CD PAP fosters independence and consumer empowerment by affording more choice and control over managing personal care needs.
