Hire a family member or friend to care for you and they’ll get paid.
CDPAP is a statewide Medicaid program that provides an alternative to traditional home care services. The unique part of this program is that the Consumer (individual receiving care) or their Designated Representative gets to choose who provides their care and how it is provided.
Consumers can even choose a family member, neighbor, or friend to become their paid personal care assistant – eliminating the stress of having strangers in your home. The consumer or designated representative will be responsible for recruiting, interviewing, hiring, training, supervising, scheduling, and dismissing personal care assistants of their choice.
Where does RECCO fit in?
As part of the program, Consumers must choose a Fiscal Intermediary (FI) to act as their liaison between the Consumer and the local Department of Social Services/Managed Health Care Plan. As the FI, Recco will assist you with all phases of the CDPAP program, provide you with all necessary documents that need to be completed for you and your Personal Assistants. Recco will process each Personal Assistant’s payroll weekly as well as mandated tax withholdings and insurance requirements. We are here to help every step of the way!
