MassHealth: Temporary Expansion of Home Health Aide Services

In light of the state of emergency declared in the Commonwealth due to the 2019 novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, MassHealth is introducing additional flexibilities for the provision of home health aide services to MassHealth members who have an existing prior authorization for Personal Care Attendant (PCA) services.

For the duration of the state of emergency declared via Executive Order No. 591, MassHealth will permit home health agencies to provide home health aide services to MassHealth members with an existing prior authorization for PCA services when a member is experiencing a disruption in receipt of PCA services due to COVID-19.
