What is CDPAP?

Care. Trust. Choice.


The “Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program,” or CDPAP, helps Medicaid recipients regain control of their own home health needs. CDPAP allows Medicaid consumers to self-direct their own home health care, giving them control of recruiting, hiring and training their own personal assistants.
Consumers are able to hire almost anyone, from family members to neighbors and friends (excluding designated representatives and spouses).
The only qualification necessary for personal assistants is that they must be legally able to work in the United States.
Personal assistants can assist you in many ways, from personal care to household tasks, as well as provide skilled nursing services, such as injections, wound care, etc.
Medicaid pays for this service. Cocoon simply acts as a fiscal intermediary, meaning we will be the ones processing all of the billing and payroll for you.
