Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
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). This may cause confusion for Participants and CHC – Managed Care Organizations (CHC-MCOs). This factsheet and appendix outline how different AT devices may be covered and, we hope, will help Participants advocate for getting the AT devices they need approved.
