As you may know, the way you are hired and paid as an Individual Provider (IP) is changing. Consumer Direct Care Network Washington (CDWA) will become the Consumer Directed Employer (CDE) of all IPs. On September 1, you and your Client(s) will receive additional information on actions you must take for the CDE transition.
Once you are working as an employee of CDWA, you will no longer collect Client Responsibility (also known as participation) from Clients. Clients will pay their Client Responsibility directly to CDWA. You will be paid by CDWA for all authorized hours worked and submitted.
Once you are submitting time worked to CDWA it is important that you NO LONGER accept Client Responsibility from Clients. If your Client attempts to pay Client Responsibility directly to you, you must not accept it.
