How Consumer Directed Personal Assistance works

RECEIVE
EVALUATION

Your physician will write a prescription (medical order) for a home care evaluation. This evaluation will determine if you require services, if you are self-directing, and how many hours of care you are eligible to receive.

DETERMINE
ELIGIBILITY

CDChoices does NOT determine eligibility for CDPA. Your Local Department of Social Services or Managed Long Term Care Plan will determine eligibility at the home care evaluation.

SELECT
HOME CARE

If you decide Consumer Directed Personal Assistance is right for you, you will need to choose a Fiscal Intermediary, like CDChoices, to provide payroll and benefit services.

DISCOVER YOUR PERSONAL ASSISTANT

Recruit, hire and train the people you want to employ as your home care workers or Personal Assistants.
