In addition to home care, VNHC also provides specialized services under the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), and is approved for service coordination and as a provider for the Nursing Home Transition and Diversion (NHTD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Programs.
The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is a statewide Medicaid program that provides an alternative way of receiving home care services for chronically ill or physically disabled individuals with a medical need. By utilizing CDPAP, the consumer has more control over who provides their care and how it is provided. The program provides help with activities of daily living (ADLs) and/or skilled nursing services. The consumer or a person acting on their behalf (called the designated representative) assumes full responsibility for the recruiting, hiring, training and supervision of their personal assistant(s).
Eligibility for the program is determined by your local Department of Social Services or Managed Care Organization. Visiting Nurses Home Care provides fiscal intermediary services for CDPAP. We thoroughly educate and familiarize all parties about how the program works. As the fiscal intermediary, VNHC coordinates processing of weekly payroll and associated benefits for the personal assistants.
For more information about CDPAP, call Visiting Nurses Home Care at (518) 694-9907, email us at CDPAP@vnhc.com, or contact your local Department of Social Services or managed care organization and request information about the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program through Visiting Nurses Home Care.

Visiting Nurses Home Care is approved for service coordination and as a provider for the Nursing Home Transition and Diversion (NHTD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Medicaid Waiver Programs.
The NHTD Program was created to enable New Yorkers with disabilities and senior citizens to live in the community instead of a nursing home. The TBI program provides services to persons with a traumatic brain injury and helps them live in the community setting of their choice.
The New York State Department of Health oversees these programs and contracts with Regional Resource Development Centers (RRDC) to manage the program throughout the state. The RRDC staff can explain the program and help individuals get started, as well as assist them in selecting a service coordination agency. Visiting Nurses Home Care is a service coordination agency.
Call VNHC at (518) 694-9907 for more information about NHTD/TBI service coordination.
