What is CDPAP

What is CDPAP?

Tri-Med Staffing helps medicaid consumers enroll in the CDPAP program, which stands for Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program. The program is a viable alternative to conventional home care services, and is the perfect program for consumers who are looking for more independence with their home care.

The program enables self-directed consumers and/or advocates to recruit, interview, hire, train, schedule, supervise and dismiss Personal Assistant(s) of their choice. Self-directed consumers and/or advocates of the consumer assess the home care needs, determine how and by whom these needs should be met, and monitor the quality of services received. Individuals independently make all decisions and manage all home care services directly.
