Welcome to the most comprehensive consumer-directed care program in the nation! Consumer Directed Care Plus (CDC+) is a Medicaid program in Florida that gives the consumer the opportunity to hire workers and vendors to help with daily needs such as housecleaning, cooking and getting dressed. Your paid workers may even be family members or friends. In order to be eligible for CDC+, you must be receiving services from the Medicaid Aged/Disabled Adult (ADA) Waiver or the Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injury (TBI/SCI) Waiver. All of the waiver services you are now receiving are available in CDC+. The PLUS means there’s more! You will have a trained Consultant to assist you but you may also choose a family member or friend as your Representative to manage your budget plan and help you make decisions. The CDC+ program is operated by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs with the Department of Health and the Department of Children and Families as partners. CDC+ allows you to live your life your way.
