Home Health Aide
An HHA (Home Health Aide) assists the patient in the activities of daily living and provide basic routine care; such as assistance in eating, bathing, brushing teeth, giving medicine, changing dressing, checking a patient’s temperature, pulse rate and check vital signs. An HHA follows a plan of care which is written up by a nurse at time of assessment.
Personal Care Aide (PCA)
A PCA will follow a plan of care written by the nurse that will encompass all or part of the duties listed. They can perform household duties and well as assist with hands on care for the patient. A PCA can remind patient to take medications and accompany patient to medical appointment but they cannot administer medication on their own for the patient. These professionals help people living with physical or mental disabilities perform day-to-day activities and lead normal lives
Consumer Directed (CDPAS)
CDPAP: Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program
Finding the right Care for the People You Care for Most The CDPAP program is a self-directed home care program available to Medicaid eligible consumers in need of home care services and capable of directing their own care. Once your eligibility is determined as well as the type and amount of services needed, the next step will be to locate a Personal Assistant(s) (PA). These PA’s can be virtually anyone the consumer wants: A friend, neighbor, aide or even a family member. PA’s do not have to be HHA certified. A parent, spouse, or designated representative is not eligible for PA status. Once you have a designated PA, he/she enrolls with us.
The CDPAP program enables individuals to embrace independence by controlling their own care. The Personal Assistant You Hire Can Help You With:
• Personal Hygiene
If you or a family member is eligible and in need of someone to provide assistance with daily living tasks, one of the Outreach Specialists at Marquis Home Care can help you get enrolled in CDPAP today.
A Companion is completely directed by the patient but will not provide hands-on care for the patient. They will provide companionship, offer encouragement and perform light housekeeping tasks.

Pool Trust & Medicaid Assistance
A Pooled Income Trust is a unique type of trust operated by a federally approved 501(c)(3) that allows disabled individuals of any age to preserve their income and assets, so that they may become or retain financial eligibility for public benefits such as Medicaid Home Care.
Under current New York Medical law, income in excess of the monthly Medicaid allowance must first be spent down on home care or medical expenses prior to receiving Medicaid coverage. Unfortunately, the guidelines do not exempt living expenses, such as rent, food, clothes, or utility services when calculating an applicant’s excess income. As a result, Medicaid recipients may not have a sufficient amount of funds to maintain their standard monthly living expenses.
Per state and federal regulations, any disabled individual that deposits their monthly excess income into a Pooled Income Trust will not be subject to rules that regularly apply to monthly excess income. The deposited income will therefore not be counted as available income required to be spent on medical expenses.
By establishing a Pooled Income Trust, the beneficiary obtains the benefit of having their monthly income available to them to pay for their living expenses without contributing to the cost of their medical care.
Managed Long Term Care Plans (MLTC):
Anyone who qualifies for Medicaid and is eligible for skilled services can sign up for a Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) plan. MLTCs are designed for people who can no longer live alone without assistance but do not require care in a long-term nursing home facility. For those who do not have Medicaid, Marquis Home Care offers competitive private pay plans that allow you to take advantage of our services.

Enrollment in a MLTC plan is mandatory for those who:
* Have dual eligibility for Medicaid and Medicare
* Are over 21 years of age
* Require community-based long term care services for more than 120 days.
Our team at Marquis has the experience with guiding multitudes in MLTC plans and can help you choose the one that is right for you.

Long Term Liability Insurance:
Marquis works with numerous long term liability insurance companies that offer home health care as part of your lifetime insurance bank.
Marquis accepts private pay cases where the member or their family pays Marquis directly for services rendered. This option is for those who are not part of an MLTCP or for those who do not have Medicaid or another long term liability insurance plan.
We offer flexible payment plans and accept payment in the form of check or credit card.
Managed Care Organization – MCO:
A managed care organization (MCO) is a health care provider, group or organization of medical service providers who offer managed care health plans. It is a health organization that contracts with insurers or self-insured employers and finances and delivers health care using a specific provider network and specific services and products.
They provide a wide variety of quality and managed health care services to enrolled workers keeping medical costs down through preventative medicine, patient education, and in other ways. These organizations are certified by the director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS).
