Post Using CDPA While Travelling: Your Rights and Obligations

Using CDPA While Travelling: Your Rights and Obligations
One of the many benefits of using CDPA is that your personal assistants
can accompany you when you go out – whether it be to social functions, a
trip to the store, business trips, or vacation. This is consistent with
the notion that CDPA is premised on the notion of giving consumers the
flexibility to live independent in their community. Travel is a key part
of that flexibility.

Personal assistants may accompany consumers on trips to perform approved
tasks on the consumer’s plan of care. However, it is important to note
that while Medicaid will pay your workers wages, it will not pay for
travel expenses incurred or extra work outside of the plan of care. If you
anticipate additional needs while you are traveling, you may ask your plan
to temporarily modify your plan of care, although there is no guarantee
that they will. It is also important for you to know that Medicaid will
not reimburse for any services performed outside the United States or U.S.

Before travel takes place, consumers must inform their managed care plan
when they will be traveling out of state or service region. While a
managed care plan cannot deny travel or tell consumers not to leave the
state, it is very important to note that travel must not exceed 30 days,
or the case will be disenrolled and services will be terminated. In the
event of special circumstances or emergencies, i.e. an emergency while
travelling, consumers should contact their managed care plan directly and
inform them of the situation. Plans may extend authorizations for
emergencies, but it is their decision.
