An agency offering home care services could claim Medicaid in Pennsylvania only if they are certified as an HHA (Home Health Agency). There are some regulations that should be considered as well before claiming Medicaid. Many regulations must be followed by the agencies to be compliance in their state. Apart from this, license and certification are mandatory for agencies. Details are offered by Bureaus of Licensing and Certification.
Governing Body: Pennsylvania Medicaid
In Pennsylvania, Medicaid is also referred as Medical Assistance (MA) and aims to provide coverage to low-income residents including individuals from 19 to 64 years of age, seniors, blind and disabled people, and families with children under the age of 21 years.
