We Are Well Positioned For Projected Explosion In Demand For CDPAP Services
Mar, 31 2016
New York Health Care, Inc. today announced that it is well positioned for the coming surge in demand for CDPAPservices. Effective April 1, 2016, certain family members previously not approved to provide CDPAP will be approved as caregivers. Starting April 2016, parents of disabled adult children will be allowed to serve as CDPAP aides if they are not also the recipient’s designated representative.
“We welcome this news and believe that this marks a fundamental shift that will greatly benefit both patients and caregivers” stated Murry Englard, the company’s CEO. Mr. Englard continued “allowing parents to act as caregivers for their adult children should result in better care for the homebound and those in need of home healthcare services. ”
NYHC provides CDPAP services throughout New York City and surrounding counties to include Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland, Westchester and Orange.
CDPAP is a Medicaid alternative to traditional home health care where the consumer has more control over who provides their care and how it is provided. CDPAP allows people with disabilities and certain medical conditions to direct their own home health care and skilled nursing services. They are able to hire, schedule, supervise and fire their own personal assistants. This means that in many cases, family members who are caregivers can be paid for their services.
For more information on CDPAP, or if you or a family member qualify and are in need of CDPAP services, please contact Paulette Fenner at New York Health Care, Inc. at 718-375-6700, extension 2915.
