How to Apply for CDPAP: A Step-by-Step Guide


Applying for the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) can seem daunting. This step-by-step guide aims to simplify the process for you. If you’re looking for a straightforward way to apply, consider going through Advanced Home Care, where we make the application process as easy as possible.

Step 1: Check Your Eligibility

To be eligible for CDPAP, you must:

  • Require home care assistance
  • Be capable of directing your own care or have a representative to do it for you
  • Be Medicaid-eligible

Step 2: Consult Your Physician

The first official step is to get a medical form completed by your physician, indicating that you require home care services.

Step 3: Submit Required Paperwork

  • Medical forms
  • Proof of Medicaid eligibility
  • Identification documents

Submitting these through Advanced Home Care can expedite the process, as we have streamlined systems to ensure quick approvals.

Step 4: Choose Your Caregiver

Unlike traditional home care programs, CDPAP allows you to hire someone you know and trust, including friends or family members.

Step 5: Interview and Training

Conduct interviews with your selected caregivers. When you work with Advanced Home Care, we guide you through what to look for in a caregiver, making it easier for you to make an informed decision.
