Community Health Choices is Coming to your Area
When it comes to your health care, your choice matters. Pennsylvania is launching Community HealthChoices (CHC) in your area on January 1, 2020.
If you are 21 years or older, receive Medical Assistance and have Medicare, are in a nursing facility, or receive services at home through an Office of Long-Term Living waiver, you may move to CHC.
If you are eligible for CHC, the way you receive your Medical Assistance (also called Medicaid) services will change. CHC WILL NOT CHANGE YOUR MEDICARE BENEFITS.
If you are eligible, you will have already received an informational packet. That packet has the information you will need to choose a CHC health plan for your Medical Assistance services by December 20, 2019. You can change plans any time if you find the plan you selected, or were enrolled in, does not fit your needs.
Learn about your health plan options. Discuss CHC and your health plan options with family and important people in your life. Discuss CHC with your providers; ask which CHC plans they will work with. If you are in a nursing home or have a service coordinator, you can talk to them about CHC.
To select your plan, call 1-844-824-3655 or (TTY 1-833-254-0690), visit www.enrollchc.com or mail back the paper application that was sent to you.
