Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Services

The CDPAP program allows the Consumer/Designated Representative to administer and assume responsibility for their own care.

The flexibility of this program and the way in which it is administered is what makes it so unique. It promotes independence and gives the consumer a true sense of involvement in the decision-making process with his/her own care.

Recco Home Care Service remains to be a lead Fiscal Intermediary for CDPAP program approved by New York State.
