Other Reasons to Choose CDChoices as Your Fiscal Intermediary

– Find the Right Personal Assistant for Your Needs

As a fiscal intermediary, we are committed to elevating consumers’ ability to seek the quality at-home care they deserve. As part of this mission, we also provide a Workforce Recruitment Portal that allows you to list your employment opportunity and recruit personal assistants that may be interested and qualified to meet your requirements for care. The portal’s easy-to-use interface allows both consumers and assistants to save time on finding the right person for their needs.

– Relieve Yourself of Administrative Tasks

After recruiting the right candidate, the consumer is responsible for onboarding, training, and overseeing the personal assistant. In addition to these duties, compensating the caregiver is an essential function.

As part of our services as your fiscal intermediary, we can assist consumers with CDPAP-related financial and administrative tasks such as

● Payroll processing
● Tax withholding
● Monitoring assessment and employment
● Benefits administration
● Consumer agreement monitoring
● Compliance assistance

Because we fulfill these essential responsibilities on your behalf, you can spend more time focusing on receiving the care that you need and worrying less about paperwork. Personal assistants also benefit from the peace of mind that they will receive their accurate compensation on time and have full and transparent access to the benefits they are entitled to.
