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.

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.

There are simple requirements to qualify for this position: You must be able to legally work in the United States.
