Pennsylvanians will be among the first to receive new Medicare cards, sans Social Security Numbers. The new cards will be rolled out to PA residents between April and June 2018.
See what the new card looks like here:
The Wolf Administration is committed to serving more people in the community while giving them the opportunity to work, spend more time with their families, and experience an overall better quality of life. Community HealthChoices (CHC) is a new initiative that will increase opportunities for older Pennsylvanians and individuals with physical disabilities to remain in their homes. CHC rolled out in the southwest region on January 1, 2018.
CHC was developed to: (1) enhance access to and improve coordination of medical care and; (2) create a person-driven, long-term support system in which people have choice, control, and access to a full array of quality services that provide independence, health, and quality of life. Long-term services and supports help eligible individuals to perform daily activities in their home such as bathing, dressing, preparing meals, and administering medications.
Please see the attached document that describes how CHC works in coordination with Medicare.
The attachment is available in alternate format upon request by contacting the Office of Long-Term Living, Bureau of Policy and Regulatory Management at 717-857-3280. If you have any questions, please visit www.HealthChoices.pa.gov or submit comments electronically to RA-PWCHC@pa.gov.
