NHTD Waiver Program FAQs

1. Is the NHTD waiver program compatible with CDPAP?
No. NHTD provides additional hours of home care for safety supervision. However, CDPAP home attendants can register and train with HumanCare and provide NHTD services - subject to restrictions for family members. See question 6.
2. Will the applicant lose any current services once enrolled in the waiver program?
No. Everything the applicant has received from the MLTC services will continue through the waiver program, including case management, home care, incontinence supply coverage, and transportation to medical appointments.
3. Will applicants who are currently receiving home care services from Human Care lose their home attendants when registering for the NHTD program?
No. Applicants currently receiving managed care services with Human Care can retain their home attendants.
4. Will my family member lose their home attendants if they’re receiving home care services from another agency?
No. If an applicant is choosing to work with Human Care for NHTD Homecare services they may choose to have their current aides register with Human Care. Aides that choose to register with Human Care receive matched pay rates to their current agency.
5. Do I need any medical documents to apply for the NHTD waiver program?
No. Medical documentation of cognitive impairment isn’t required for persons aged 65+. However, during the care plan development process, Human Care may require documentation to authorize the start of services.
6. Can a family member be a carer?
Immediate family members cannot qualify as home care providers. This includes a parent, child, child’s spouse, or sibling. A grandchild, niece, nephew, etc. may become a caregiver and can receive PCA training directly from Human Care.
