We will assist you with applying for PA Waiver Program

Eligibility for CHC Medicaid waiver

In order to be eligible for CHC waiver services, one must be 21 years of age or older and a resident of Pennsylvania. Additionally, one must be both clinically eligible and financially eligible. Clinically eligible means that the person is determined to be eligible through evaluation of one’s needs from a medical perspective. Financially eligible means having very limited income and resources.


Applicants must require a nursing home level of care or be eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare to be deemed eligible for the program. In medical terms of the program that means the person gets a formal assessment and is nursing facility clinically eligible (NFCE).

The process for determining if someone is clinically eligible can be somewhat complex. However, it follows these general guidelines:

    1. The individual has an illness, injury, disability, or medical condition diagnosed by a physician and
    2. As a result of that diagnosed illness, injury, disability or medical condition, the individual requires care and services above the level of room and board, and
    3. A physician certifies that the individual is NFCE(Nursing Facility Clinically  Eligible), and
    4. The care and services are either Skilled Nursing or Rehabilitation Services (For example, a nursing home) or health-related care and services that may not be as complex as Skilled Nursing or Rehabilitation Services, but which are needed and provided on a regular basis through medical and technical personnel.
