Pennsylvania Department of Human Services Aging Waiver Program
The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services Waiver Program is for nursing home appropriate individuals age 60 and older. This consumer choice program offers home and community-based services as an alternative to receiving the same services in a nursing facility.
Services are funded through a special waiver of Medicaid restrictions, which allows for payment typically used solely for nursing home care to be used for care and services to be provided at home.
The Aging Waiver Program remains a Department of Human Services program and is subject to all Medicaid program restrictions.
