Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults
Community Alternatives Program for
Disabled Adults (CAP/DA)
The Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults (CAP/DA) 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. With good case management, a complete package of services and reliable informal support from family and friends, many individuals may remain safely at home at lower Medicaid cost than nursing facility care. The CAP/DA program is now available in all 100 counties.
