“have a stable state of health” [NOTE: This is the same definition as for body care See Section 2 – Right of Claim. Note, however, that unlike body care, CDPAP assistants can perform skilled tasks. In this way, the definition of “stable medical condition” for the CDPAP is different. The Consumer Directd Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is a national Medicaid program that offers another opportunity to use home care services, where the consumer has more control over who provides their care and how it is provided. Instead of using a home care provider or agency that controls the selection, training and planning of assistants, the “consumer” or family member, friend or guardian who manages their care performs all of these functions normally performed by a provider. All counties – and now all traditional and long-term long-term care plans – must have a CDPAP program and inform “authorized persons” of the option to participate. Authorized persons include persons eligible for the services of a certified home health authority, a long-term home care programme (waiver), an AIDS care programme or home assistance (escort). In addition, many consumers opt for CDPAP because they have “skilled” needs that may not satisfy traditional caregivers, such as for example. B aspiration of a tracheostomy, use of an artificial respirator or direct administration of insulin or other medicines. See the tasks of different types of wizards. While they are eligible for Medicaid Private Duty Nursing Services, Managed Care and MLTC plans oppose authorizing these services because they are expensive.
These consumers and others who face limited access to care when FIs are closed may be forced to go to nursing homes. Below are the forms needed for consumers to start using the CDPAP. Please print the forms and fill them out by sending the order proposed below.

Educ. Law § 6908 (1) (a) (aka Nurse Practice Act, This creates an exception that allows CDPAP assistants with family members and other unpaid informal guardians to perform tasks that can normally only be performed by licensed nurses. A “designated representative” of a CDPAP consumer must not be the auxiliary. The rules of the state state state: “. For a non-self-controlled consumer, a “designated representative” means the parent, legal guardian of the consumer or, subject to the agreement of the social services district, a responsible adult substitute who is willing and able to assume these responsibilities on behalf of the consumer.
The designated representative may not be the consumer-focused personal assistant or a tax intermediary, representative or related person” 18 NYCRR 505.28 (b) (5) If the CDPAP is authorized by the NYC HRA Home Care Program or the LDSS office, because the MLTC or mainstream Managed Care consumer is free or excluded or presents himself on the basis of an immediate need, NYC and most counties have required the consumer or the person directing their care to complete a CDPAP application to show that they are able to organize and manage care. . . .
