Family and friends get paid a high hourly rate to become their loved one's caregivers.The CDPAP program is a New York State Medicaid plan that allows patients to recruit and hire family members and friends as their paid caregivers. As a result, individuals who live at home don’t have to go to assisted living or similar facilities because they become sick or need some monitoring and care. In addition, the CDPAP program provides a lower-cost home care option. Patients can choose who will provide their care. The patient’s caregiver gets paid weekly. The hourly pay rate is $15. A registered nurse from Medicaid will conduct a couple of assessments to determine paiteint eligibility and how many hours of home care the patient needs.
