CDPAP fiscal intermediaries are entities contracted with a social services district to provide wages and benefits for consumer-directed personal assistants and other intermediary responsibilities.
CDPAP hourly pay ranges from around $11.12/hour for elder care assistants to around $15.22/hour for caretakers.
CDPAP recipients must be able to make informed choices regarding their health management or have a legal guardian or designated relative/adult who is able and willing to make those choices.
The only difference is a letter! They are essentially the same program.
As long as you meet CDPAP requirements, you absolutely can get paid to take care of a family member in NY.
NJ has a program similar to CDPAP called JACC where friends and family members that meet program requirements are eligible for payment.
Caregivers can get paid in NJ under the JACC program if they meet the eligibility requirements.
Receiving 24 hour home care under CDPAP guidelines requires a physician’s note as well as a visit from a Medicaid nurse to evaluate the recipient’s needs, which determines how many hours of service a caregiver can be compensated for.
Insurance generally covers short-term care and not 24 hour home care.
24 hour home care can pay between $150 to $350 dollars per day.
