PA Department of Aging Medicaid Waiver Program


Home and community-based services are provided as an alternative to nursing home care.

Services are funded through a special waiver of certain Medicaid restrictions, allowing payments typically used for nursing home care to be used for home care services.

Under this program, individuals found to be clinically appropriate and eligible for nursing home placement are served in their own homes and provided more intensive community and in-home services.

A care plan is developed to insure adequate care and safety, and intensive monitoring is provided to maintain the consumer.
