North Carolina Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults Waiver (CAP/DA)

North Carolina

“The Community Alternative Program for Disabled Adults (CAP/DA) is North Carolina Medicaid's home and community based services waiver program. In this program, low-income, disabled state residents have an alternative to nursing home placement. Program participants remain in their private residences or receive care in the home of a friend or family. By offering medical and personal care services, North Carolina aims to increase the disabled and seniors' autonomy. The program also covers the cost of minor home adaptations that increase the independence or safety of the program participant.”
