WHAT IS CDPAS?
CDPAS, worry less and live more.
You now have the choice to direct your own care by choosing a caregiver you’re familiar with.
CDPAS – Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program is an alternative to traditional home care. This Medicaid based, self-managed care system gives you the opportunity to have a family member, friend or neighbor take care of you, giving you full control over who provides your care and how it is provided. No special training, licensing, or certification is required.
