Competitive Pay for Personal Assistants

At CDChoices, we empower consumers to set their pay rate based on a range set for each Managed Care Organization (MCO) or local Department of Social Services (LDSS) office. The Consumer Directed Personal Assistant Program (CDPAP) pay rate is up to $17.55 per hour ($26.33 per hour for overtime) in NYS (excluding Westchester, NYC and Long Island).
