Consumer-Directed Attendant Care (CDAC) Services for Members
In the Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver program of Iowa Medicaid, there is an opportunity for people to have help in their own homes. Consumer-Directed Attendant Care (CDAC) services are designed to help people do things that they normally would for themselves if they were able. People may reach a point where they need help to remain in their own home. This may happen because of an accident, a lengthy illness, disability, or aging problems. Fortunately, there is an option for people in this situation. A person may consider hiring a CDAC assistant.
CDAC services will begin to change on October 1, 2013. Over time, services from Individual CDAC providers will no longer be covered by Iowa Medicaid, ending completely on June 30, 2014. CDAC services will still be available through agency personal care services or the Consumer Choice Option (CCO). Read more about CDAC services by accessing the CDAC MEMBER HANDBOOK.
