Community Alternative Program for Disabled Adults - CAP/DA Program

The CAP/DA program is a special Medicaid Program under the Community Care Section of the Division of Medical Assistance.  The program makes care at home a real possibility for many people who face nursing home placement.  CAP/DA exists to supplement rather than replace the formal and informal services and support already available to an individual.
 
CAP/DA is for an individual 18 years of age and older who:
 
  • Are eligible for Medicaid;
  • Lives in a private residence and is at risk of being placed in a nursing facility and desires to stay in their home;
  • Requires nursing facility care as determined through the Medicaid prior approval process;
  • Needs CAP/DA services to remain safely at home;
  • Can have his or her health, safety, and well-being maintained at home with the Medicaid cost limit; and
  • Desires CAP/DA services instead of institutional care.
The key people involved are the beneficiary, those who provide care for the beneficiary, a Registered Nurse and the CAP/DA Case Manager.
