Consumer Directed Attendant Care (CDAC)

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.
