Government paying people to assist Medicaid patients!

The Government has created a CDPAP program that enables almost anyone to get paid for taking care of someone on Medicaid. CDPAP is a Medicaid program that allows consumers that need home care to direct their own care by hiring and training almost anyone, including family members or parent of a child (over 21 years old) to assist with daily home care needs.

  • Do I need any training for this position?

No formal training is required for you to qualify as a caregiver. Any skill that would be required for this opportunity will be taught to you by the patients themselves. The amount of hours you will need to work as a caregiver will be determined by the patient’s insurance company. There are simple requirements to qualify for this position: You must be able to legally work in the United States. You need to have taken a full physical examination with your doctor, including complete lab results, with the last year.

  • How do I apply?

You will need to enroll your family member with Medicaid into a CDPAP (Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program) that will allow you to become their caregiver.
