Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Program

About the Program


The Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Program is a program for Medical Assistance recipients designed to assist and support persons with disabilities who are living independently in the community. This includes the elderly and others with special health care needs.

PCA services are provided in the recipient's home or in the community when normal life activities take him/her outside the home. An assessment by county staff is needed to determine eligibility to access the program.
