This week, DPW begins mailing all adult Medical Assistance (MA) recipients a letter introducing them to benefit changes tied to the Healthy PA initiative. The letter tells each adult recipient which of three benefit packages they will likely receive starting January 1, 2015.
Please note: the MA benefit package for children under age 21 is not being changed.
Adults assigned to the Healthy or Healthy PA Private Coverage Option (PCO) may need to take action to be sure they have coverage for needed services next year. Individuals placed in these two groups who fail to act may end up with a benefit package that does not meet their needs and they may be unable to change this package until the end of 2015.
