​Home & Community-Based Services (HCBS)

Home and community-based services that Homeplus Care provide are also known as waiver-funded services or waiver programs. These are "waiver" programs because the federal government "waives" medical assistance rules for institutional care in order for Pennsylvania to use the funds for HCBS. HCBS provides for supports and services beyond those covered by the Medical Assistance (Medicaid) program that enables a person to remain in a community setting rather than being admitted to a Long Term Care Facility. Currently, Homeplus Care offers 3 different HCBS programs: ACT 150, Community HealthChoices (CHC), and OBRA.
