To receive PCA services, a client must be on medical assistance. To qualify for medical assistance, the client’s income and asset levels must be below a certain amount set by the State. Once a client is enrolled in medical assistance, he/she needs to be assessed by a Public Health Nurse from his/her County in order to determine what PCA services he/she is are eligible for. For more information about medical assistance or to schedule an initial assessment for PCA services, you should contact your County. The County’s Human Services Department usually deals with PCA services for assisting people with disabilities or helping the elderly.
