The Chinese-American Planning Council Home Attendant Program Inc. (CPCHAP) – a subsidiary of the Chinese-American Planning Council Inc. (CPC) – provides critical, life-saving home care services to Medicaid patients, who cannot afford such services otherwise. We have no choice but to do so by following New York State Medicaid rules and requirements, as well as Department of Labor laws, court decisions, and union agreements. We have long called for the State to replace 24-hour home care cases with two 12-hour split shifts, which would be best for both workers and patients. This requires changes to State labor law and Medicaid funding rates.
