If you have a physical disability, the state-funded Act 150 program may be available to you to continue to live in your home and community with support and services.
Eligibility is based on a level of care assessment, a financial eligibility determination and program eligibility
To be eligible for Act 150 Services, you must:
- Be a resident of Pennsylvania
- Meet the level of care needs for a Skilled Nursing Facility
- Be between eighteen (18) and fifty-nine (59) years of age
- Be capable of a) hiring, firing, and supervising attendant care worker(s); b) managing your own financial affairs; and c) managing your own legal affairs
- Be capable of directing your own care
- Have a medically determinable physical impairment that is expected to last of a continuous period of not less than twelve (12) calendar months or that may result in death
- Proceed through the eligibility process for the Medicaid (MA) program and be determined financially ineligible
- To take advantage of the Act 150 Program, you may be assessed a minimal co-payment. This co-payment is based on your income and will not be more than the total costs of services
The application process for Act 150 services is crucial in gaining access to the support and care you need to continue living in your home and community. Care & Help Home Care Agency is here to simplify this process with step-by-step guidance.
It begins with an initial assessment to determine your eligibility for Act 150 services. This assessment typically involves evaluating your physical disability and the level of care you require to maintain your independence.
To successfully apply, you must gather essential documents, such as medical records, financial information, and identification documents. Our team will help you compile and organize these documents, ensuring nothing is missed.
Completing the Application:
We’ll assist you in completing the Act 150 application forms accurately. It’s important to provide comprehensive and precise information to increase your chances of approval.
Submission and Follow-Up:
Once your application is ready, we’ll guide you through the submission process and help you track its progress. We understand the urgency of your needs and will ensure that your application is processed efficiently.
Financial Eligibility Determination
Understanding the intricacies of financial eligibility determination involves a comprehensive evaluation of your income and financial resources. Providing precise and up-to-date financial information is essential to achieve a successful assessment. Certain assets may be exempt from consideration in determining your financial eligibility, and we’ll clarify which assets fall under this exemption. Different programs have varying income thresholds, and our guidance will ensure that your income aligns with Act 150’s financial eligibility requirements.
Medicaid (MA) Program Eligibility
Navigating the Medicaid (MA) program’s eligibility process is integral to accessing Act 150 services. Some individuals may qualify for Act 150 and Medicaid (MA), creating dual eligibility. Our team will provide insights into the complexities of dual eligibility and its implications for your access to services. Coordinating your Act 150 application with your Medicaid (MA) application is crucial for a streamlined approval process, and we’ll ensure that both applications align seamlessly.
Understanding the co-payment structure is pivotal in managing the cost of Act 150 services. Your co-payment is determined based on your income, and we will clarify how this calculation works to keep it affordable for you. Significantly, your co-payment will never exceed the total cost of the services you receive, preventing you from facing excessive financial burdens.
The Act 150 Program offers essential services to individuals with physical disabilities to support their independence and well-being. Some of the key services that may be available under the Act 150 Program include:
