CDPAANYS is looking to gather more information about how pay for personal assistants is affecting consumers’ ability to use Consumer Directed Personal Assistance. To help in this, a workgroup of consumers developed a survey. We need your input for this to be effective!

To fill out the survey, please follow this link: https://goo.gl/iVUGLh

If you are a consumer, by filling out the survey and encouraging those you know to do the same, you can help in our efforts. For FIs and others who interact with consumers of CDPA, I hope you will distribute this survey and help us gain as much insight as possible into this critical issue.

At a time when reimbursements and the very nature of CDPA are under attack, this survey is one tool in our toolbox.

This survey will be open until Sunday, November 20.

Please, click on this link https://goo.gl/iVUGLh and fill out the survey NOW – before you forget.

We will begin analyzing the results at that time. We will put the results into a report that will be distributed to Governor Cuomo, the Legislature and other critical stakeholders.

If you have any questions about this survey, please do not hesitate to contact us.

You can find the survey online at the following link: https://goo.gl/iVUGLh.

Thank you for your participation in this project.
