Medical Assistance Waiver

Huntingdon County, PA Medical Assistance Waiver Program

What is the PDA Waiver Program?

The Pennsylvania Department of Aging Waiver Program is for people age 60 and older. Under the program, home and community-based services can be provided to consumers as an alternative to nursing home care. It is a “Waiver” program because services are funded through a special waiver of Medicaid restrictions, allowing payments typically used for nursing home care to be used for home care services.

How Can the PDA Waiver Program help me?

After a thorough assessment to determine eligibility, services may be available to help consumers live comfortably at home. A Care Manager will help you design a care plan and monitor delivery of appropriate services.

Who will provide these services to me?

After the consumer and Care Manager agree on a plan to meet your needs, the Care Manager will authorize the services. The consumer will select from a list of participating providers they want to provide the service. (All service providers are certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare to ensure that they meet Medicaid standards.)
