Personal Care Attendant Program (PCA) 

What is the Personal Care Attendant Program?

The Personal Care Attendant (PCA) Program is a "consumer directed" program funded by MassHealth. Consumers assume the responsibility for hiring their own personal care attendants (PCAs) to meet their specific care needs.

Who is eligible for PCA services?

     • The Consumer must live in the community.

     • Services are open to Medicaid/MassHealth eligible Consumers, regardless of their age.

     • The Consumer must have a permanent or chronic disability. The consumer must require physical assistance with two or more ADLs. The Consumer's physician must prescribe PCA services.

     • The Consumer must be able to manage the program independently or have a Surrogate who is willing to assist them.

Who pays for Personal Care Attendants?

MassHealth reimburses the work done by Personal Care Attendants based on 
the amount of time approved.
