PERSONAL CARE ASSISTANCE (PCA) MEDICAID WAIVER PROGRAM

DO I QUALIFY?

I want to remain living at home and in my surrounding community but need help with daily living activities. Is The PCA Waiver Program right for me?

CCC partners with the State of Connecticut to offer qualified residents access to The Personal Care Assistance Medicaid Waiver Program which allows individuals with a physical disability that require hands-on help with at least two daily living activities—bathing, dressing, eating, transferring or toileting— to receive a personal care assistant.

I WANT MORE INFORMATION BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICES

Personal Care Assistants are employees of individuals participating in the program. Program participants negotiate with personal care assistants to determine the wages that are paid. Wages may be set up to a maximum rate, which is generally less than what is charged by an agency, thus allowing participants more hours of care for equal or less money. Program participants are responsible for hiring, training, supervising and terminating Personal Care Assistants. A Conservator may supervise a Personal Care Assistant, but may not be related to the participant nor can they be their Personal Care Assistant.

Applicants for the PCA Waiver Program must complete and file a Personal Care Assistance Waiver Request Form and apply for Medicaid covered services. Program participants must also meet income and asset requirements. Depending on their income, some participants may be required to contribute to the cost of Personal Care Assistance services.

Note: Participation in the waiver is limited and applicants may be placed on a wait list.
