A change is coming in how Individual Providers (IPs) are employed and how IPs are paid. Consumer Direct Care Network Washington (CDWA) is the Consumer Directed Employer (CDE) vendor selected by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). The changeover to the CDE will begin in Summer 2021. Please join one of the upcoming webinars to learn more about the CDE!

There will be four webinars in April. Interested persons are welcome to register for as many webinars as apply to them.

The changeover to the CDE will start with a small pilot group of Clients and IPs this summer. Additional Clients and IPs will changeover in two phases later in 2021 and into 2022. All Clients and IPs will need to submit new documentation to CDWA during the CDE changeover. CDWA will employ all IPs by early 2022.
