A: CDPAP promotes your independence and freedom by allowing you to hire the caregiver of your choice. The caregiver can be a relative, friend or neighbor, allowing you to enjoy the comfort and peace-of-mind that you are being cared for by someone you trust. CDPAP also allows for flexible scheduling to suit your needs, and a formal weekly payroll structure for your caregivers.

A: The CDPAP caregiver can provide the same services that can be provided by a personal care aide, home health aide, or nurse.
Q: how do I find out if I or a loved one is qualified for the CDPAP program?
A: To qualify for the CDPAP program, you must be eligible for New York State Medicaid services. You will also need to have a Doctor’s Order and a designated representative to direct your care. If you are not sure whether or not you are eligible, please reach out to Xincon at 212-560-9218 or inquire through our website (Enroll Today link).
Q: Who can provide care under CDPAP Program?
A: The only people who do not qualify to give care under the CDPAP program are your parents, spouse or your pre-existing designated caregiver representative. Any other family members or friends can be your personal assistant.

A: There are just two requirements needed to become a personal assistant in the CDPAP program:
(1) The person must be authorized to work in the United States
(2) The person must meet the State’s required health standards
Note that a HHA/PCA certificate is NOT required to provide care under the CDPAP program.
Q: What is Xincon’s role as a Fiscal Intermediary in the process of hiring someone via the CDPAP program?
A: Under State Medicaid regulations, reimbursement for consumer-directed care must be arranged through a recognized fiscal intermediary (FI). The FI’s main role is to process the personal assistant’s wages, taxes, benefits, liability insurance requirements, etc. The FI is also in-charge of record-keeping, communication and consumer-education.
