PCA Services are a type of Home Health Care Service that helps people with their non-medical health related needs. The goal of Personal Care Assistant Services as with other Home Care Services is to help people live independently in their own homes and in the community as opposed to a facility. PCA Services are available to individuals of all ages with special health care needs and are a paid benefit under Medical Assistance. PCA services can be provided through the fee-for-service program, Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver programs, or through prepaid health plans (UCare, Etc.).
