How to Qualify for CDPAP

Individual eligibility is decided by the Medicaid Managed Long Term Care provider. Caring Professionals’ CDPAP team helps you through the process, starting with paperwork and working with your provider to schedule the necessary home assessments.

Our intake team works to make this application process easy and smooth for your family. There is no need to leave your home or visit outside doctors for this application process.

Don’t have Medicaid? We can help you understand eligibility and requirements for the Medicaid application too.

Ongoing Support

Once eligible, our Caring Professionals team provides continued support. We work diligently to ensure payment schedules are met, and all applicable paperwork is kept organized.

This means timesheets and paychecks are processed through our system, allowing you to focus on what is really important: your family.
