An Advocate Guide to Community HealthChoices in PennsylvaniaA comprehensive, easy-to-understand handbook to navigate Pennsylvania's new managed long-term services and supports program

In 2018, Pennsylvania started a new Medicaid managed care program called Community HealthChoices (CHC). Pennsylvania already has a mandatory 20-yearold Medicaid managed care program, called HealthChoices, however, HealthChoices does not cover all Medicaid participants. CHC expands Pennsylvania’s Medicaid managed care to people who were not in HealthChoices and were receiving Medicaid benefits through the Medicaid Fee-For-Service system.  The shift to managed care represents a significant change in how services are accessed and delivered.

This Community HealthChoices Advocate Handbook was prepared by the Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly (CARIE) to provide advocates with a resource for understanding Community HealthChoices and contact information to CARIE and other organizations for when issues or concerns arise.  An electronic version of this handbook can be found here.
