Homecare services ARE Essential Life-Sustaining Services. We will continue to provide care for our consumers.
For all long-term services and supports providers offering services in the Community HealthChoices program, the OBRA waiver, and the Act 150 program, please note that you are considered life-sustaining and are therefore exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses. Long-term services and supports providers offer services that maintain participant daily living requirements in a multitude of essential ways and those providers are expected to continue offering those services through the COVID-19 crisis period.
Thank you for all of your valuable and life-sustaining work and for your commitment to the Pennsylvania long-term care population.
