medicaid, New York, home care


The New York State Department of Health (DOH) recently began funding a grant to the CDPANNYS, on organization whose members focus on the delivery of self-directed home care. This grant funds outreach and education to stakeholders concerning the statewide availability of the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), a home care program for Medicaid eligible New Yorkers. CDPAANYS is an inter-organizational membership organization, and its 14 members do not cover all of the New Yorks 62 counties. However, the DOH grant required CDPAANYS to conduct statewide outreach that promotes both member organization and non-members. This research study examined how the outreach and education grant was perceived by CDPAANYs members and non-members.
