The Pennsylvania Health Access Network and Philadelphia Health Partnership, at the request of the Department of Human Services, along with the support of the University of Pittsburgh’s Medicaid Research Center, will host a series of listening sessions to understand the experiences of older adults and people with disabilities covered by Pennsylvania’s new Medicaid program, Community HealthChoices (CHC). CHC is working to give people the support they need to live independently in the community, rather than in nursing homes, and to improve the quality of life for the Commonwealth’s low-income senior citizens and residents with physical disabilities.
Listening sessions will give participants in the program the opportunity to share their experiences, voice their concerns, and learn how to get the services they need to live well and independently. People enrolled in Community HealthChoices, caregivers, and anyone interested in learning more about home-based services for older adults and people with disabilities are encouraged to attend. PHAN can help arrange transportation or interpretation services.
**Media are welcome to attend the beginning of the session. Part of the session will be closed to the media.
