Personal Care Services
What are Personal Care and Waiver Services?
Blessings4Ever offers premium home care services for those who qualify for Medicaid-Waiver Services. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania offers state funded Waiver Programs that pay for disabled and elderly citizens to receive home care services at no out-of-pocket costs. Blessings4Ever can provide assistance with completing the application process, so that you can receive the care you deserver in a timely manner.
According to the Department of Human Services:
"Waivers offer an array of services and benefits such as choice of qualified providers, due process, and health and safety assurances. The name waiver comes from the fact that the federal government "waives" Medical Assistance/Medicaid rules for institutional care in order for Pennsylvania to use the same funds to provide supports and services for people closer to home in their own communities.
In Pennsylvania, the Department of Human Services administers multiple Medical Assistance/Medicaid waivers. Each waiver has its own unique set of eligibility requirements and services."
Waivers include: Attendant Care, Act150, Independence, Aging, COMMCARE, and OBRA.
Different Types of Waivers
There are many different types of waiver programs that are available through the State of Pennsylvania and the Department of Human Services. Please see some of the waivers below to check to see if you qualify.
