How Participants in Community HealthChoices Can Access Assistive Technology

Most Pennsylvanians with disabilities and seniors who are eligible, or already receive, support services from the Department of Human Services, Office of Long-Term Living, are transitioning into a new Medicaid managed care program called Community HealthChoices. Pennsylvanians who participate in the new Community HealthChoices (CHC) managed care program and need Assistive Technology (AT) will get the AT they need from the CHC plan in which they are enrolled. AT devices, however, may be covered by one or more source(s) of coverage and under one or more covered service(s).
