PA Department of Aging Waiver Program
The Pennsylvania Department of Aging Waiver Program is for people aged 60 and older. Under the program, home and community-based long-term care services can be provided as an alternative to nursing 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. After a thorough assessment to determine eligibility, an assigned Care Manager will design a care plan and monitor appropriate services.
