What is CDPAP?
What We Do?
Who is CDPAP For?
Customized schedule: Personalization is the key to CDPAP, allowing you to create a schedule which suits your unique habits and responsibilities without upsetting your caregiver’s schedule.
Payment that Suits Both Parties: You may want to select a family member or friend as your caregiver, but without CDPAP, that person may not be able to afford missing time from work. By signing up for FreedomCare’s CDPAP program, you can hire the person you choose and Medicaid will pay the person you choose rather than a random home aide from an agency. This way, the caregiver you choose will be free to devote their full attention to your care.
Complete Control Over the Terms: Should you decide, after beginning care, that you want to switch from one caregiver to another, you are free to fire one caregiver and hire another one. The choice of who cares for you and what hours they work always remains in your hands.
Care from Someone You Trust: We want to do more than to see your needs met. We want you to enjoy the companionship of your loved one, the comfort of being assisted by someone you trust, and the peace-of-mind of a work relationship that suits your unique lifestyle.
Formal Compensation for Caregivers: Our program offers fair payment so that your caregiver can earn more than the minimum wage during their care for you. FreedomCare also offers patients the option of giving their caregiver a bonus at the end of the year if they are satisfied with their service.
How to Qualify
Doctor’s Order: Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) insurance companies sometimes require a form filled out by your doctor stating that you need home-care and that your spouse is unable to care for you. FreedomCare will assist you with this entire process.
You or a Designated Representative Direct Your Care: The patient has the right to choose his or her own caregiver if they are capable of directing their own care. If a patient is unable to direct their own care, his or her Medicaid designated representative will decide who to choose as a caregiver under FreedomCare’s CDPAP program.
Assessment by Your Local Social Services: FreedomCare will work with you on your application for CDPAP. Once we get the ball rolling, your MLTC will send a plan assessment nurse to evaluate your health care needs and decide how many hours of care per week you are entitled to.
Once Care Gets Started
All the Support You Need: We are available anytime to discuss any question you have about the CDPAP program, your caregiver, or anything else. If your caregiver needs assistance using our timesheet app for his or her smartphone or with submitting paper timesheets, we are here to help.
Payroll: We will process the weekly payroll to ensure your caregiver is well compensated for his or her time and effort.
