Community HealthChoices is Coming: Learn What It Means for You

Community HealthChoices is Coming:
Learn What It Means for Your Health and Long-Term Care

Pennsylvania is working to make our health and long-term care systems more responsive to seniors and people with disabilities. They understand that patients suffer when providers don’t talk to each other, and that most of us want to age at home and live independently rather than go to a nursing home.

Community HealthChoices is the state’s way of beginning to solve those challenges: to make sure that your care is coordinated, and to see that you get the support you need — whether it’s help taking your medications, a home health care aide, modifications to make it safe for you to move around your home, or a ride to the grocery store — to live safely and independently at home.

Most people who are covered by both Medicare and Medicaid will need to enroll in a Community HealthChoices plan by November 15th. We’ll talk about this new program, how it works, and what you need to know to pick a plan. We’ll also talk more broadly about how we can make our health care system work better for seniors.

Please join us for this important conversation. Bring your questions, your ideas for improving our health and long-term care systems, and a friend!

All events are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. RSVPs helpful, but not necessary. Contact PHAN’s Consumer Engagement Manager Erin Ninehouser at (412) 863-1047 or erin@pahealthaccess.org.

The Pennsylvania Health Access Network is a non-profit, non-partisan, consumer-led organization working to make sure seniors and people with disabilities get the best quality health care and the supports they need to live active, full lives, on their own terms.
