Care that makes sense for your family
What you want
Simply put, CDPAP changes the way we all think about home care. Rather than accept an agency’s standard form of service, you create a care plan that actually serves your individual needs.
What they need
No matter whom you choose as your personal assistant—family, friend, neighbor, or professional—Horizon pays them for doing what comes naturally anyway: serving you with heart.

Don’t settle for anything less than
control, comfort and cooperation
Home is where the health is. But when aging, chronic illness, or disability disrupts life, you need loving, 100% dependable care. Family wants to be there for you, but too often they can’t give up a paying job. Suddenly, moving to a facility or having a rotation of strangers in your home may seem like your only options.
It feels like family because it is
A better choice is on the Horizon
Medicaid introduced CDPAP to give you the power to choose a family member, lifelong friend, or trusted neighbor to be your paid home health aide. They don’t need to be certified or have any formal experience, because you hire them, train them, direct them, and even dismiss them, if necessary. You’re in charge of the schedule, and you decide what tasks you want them to perform.
It’s easy to qualify
To participate in the CDPAP program, you must be eligible for Medicaid, be enrolled in a Managed Long Term Care plan, need help with daily living, and be able to supervise your caregiver (or have a representative who can do so on your behalf).
