APPLY TODAY! CDPAANYS is hiring Peer Mentors

CDPAANYS is excited to announce a new job opportunity for experienced CDPA consumers and designated representatives who want to help others achieve success in managing their own program. 

We are hiring part-time Peer Mentors to take part in a statewide program connecting consumers and families who are interested in or are currently using CDPA with someone who is experienced and has undergone intensive mentorship training. 

For more details, including how to apply for a Peer Mentoring position, please click here.

Peer Mentoring has been proven to be effective across a wide range of communities. From military veterans, foreign exchange students to people recovering from addictions, there is no substitute for the support and understanding available from someone who has “been there” themselves.

The Department of Health has established Peer Mentoring as a Best Practice for CDPA fiscal intermediaries. Fiscal Intermediaries who wish to contract with CDPAANYS to provide Peer Mentoring to their consumers are encouraged to contact us for more information. 

BREAKING NEWS: EVV DEADLINE DELAYED TO JANUARY 1, 2021

The deadline for EVV implementation is now January 1, 2021 for Personal Care Services and CDPA.

The New York State Department of Health’s Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Good Faith Effort (GFE) exemption request has been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), delaying the required implementation date for EVV to January 1, 2021 for Personal Care Services (PCS).

The 21st Century Cures Act is a federal law, passed by Congress in December 2016, that in part requires all state Medicaid programs to implement an EVV system for personal care services (PCS) and home health care services (HHCS). All states must implement an EVV system to avoid a reduction in federal Medicaid funding. For more information on the federal law and requirements for EVV, visit: www.Medicaid.gov.
