Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, NY Medicaid does pay for family caregivers through the CDPAP program, a deeply valued initiative that allows Medicaid recipients in New York to appoint family members, friends, or neighbors as paid personal caregivers. At Amazing Home Care, we understand the profound connection and trust involved in family caregiving, and our mission is to facilitate this process with the utmost care and respect.

CDPAP in New York is designed to empower you with the freedom to choose a caregiver who truly understands your needs and preferences. This not only enhances comfort and personalized care but also strengthens the bond between you and your caregiver. Whether you live in bustling NYC, Long Island, the diverse counties of Upstate New York, or Westchester County, our program accommodates your specific needs by offering competitive reimbursement rates tailored to each area.

Caregivers are compensated based on a set of factors including the geographic location and the level of care required. For instance, rates in New York City might differ from those in other regions, ensuring that the compensation is fair and reflective of local living costs. Additionally, caregivers providing live-in or round-the-clock care are eligible for higher daily rates, matching the intensive nature of their dedication.

We at Amazing Home Care are committed to not just meeting, but exceeding, the standards of home care. We navigate the complexities of Medicaid eligibility on your behalf, making the process as smooth as possible. We also handle all administrative aspects, such as payroll, through our role as a fiscal intermediary, allowing you and your loved ones to focus on what truly matters—caring and being cared for.

Choosing us means opting for a CDPAP agency that truly cares about making a positive difference in your life. Let us help you secure the support you deserve, with the dignity and love that every individual deserves.

To be eligible for CDPAP in NYC, as well as statewide, both the person receiving care and their chosen caregiver must meet specific requirements. At Amazing Home Care, we’re here to guide you through this process with understanding and support.

For care recipients, you must be a New York Medicaid beneficiary, need help with daily activities or skilled care, and have a stable medical condition. It’s also essential that you can either direct your own care or have someone you trust manage this responsibility on your behalf.

Family members who wish to provide care must be at least 18 years old, legally able to work in the U.S., and not be the spouse or designated representative of the care recipient. They must be physically and mentally capable of performing the tasks outlined in the care recipient’s Individualized Service Plan. Notably, parents cannot be paid caregivers for children under 21 years old.

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) in NYC empowers individuals who are chronically ill or physically disabled to manage their own care. This Medicaid program allows recipients to choose and direct personal assistants to help with activities of daily living (ADLs) or skilled nursing services. The flexibility of CDPAP means that care recipients or their representatives have full control over hiring, training, and supervising their caregivers.

At Amazing Home Care, we recognize that caregiving is a profound responsibility, often requiring significant personal sacrifices. Understanding the NYS CDPAP application process and utilizing CDPAP home care can significantly alleviate the financial and emotional strain on families. Our role extends beyond providing care; we aim to be a supportive partner, helping you navigate the complexities of home care options.

As a trusted CDPAP agency in New York, we are committed to guiding you through every step of the process. We understand the importance of finding a personal assistant who is not just capable but also compassionate and dedicated to your well-being.
