    What is the PCA Program?

    The Personal Care Attendant (PCA) Program is a MassHealth program that helps people with permanent or chronic disabilities live at home by providing funds to hire PCAs. PCAs can help with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as:

    • mobility, including transfers
    • medications
    • bathing/grooming
    • dressing/undressing
    • range of motion exercises
    • eating
    • toileting

     

    Who is eligible?

    You may be eligible for PCA services if you are a MassHealth member and:

    You have a permanent or chronic disability that impairs your ability to perform ADLs and IADLs without physical assistance.

    You need physical assistance with two or more ADLs (see list above)

    Personal Care services are prescribed by your physician or nurse practitioner who are enrolled with MassHealth. Your physcian determines that PCA services are medically necessary.

    Your MassHealth coverage type must be Standard or CommonHealth.
