Beginning January 2020, Community HealthChoices (CHC) will be the mandatory managed care program for Pennsylvanians residing in the Lehigh/Capital, Northeast, and Northwest CHC zones* who are dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid (Medical Assistance), enrolled in Medicaid waivers for physical disabilities, and Medicaid-eligible consumers who reside in a nursing facility. As a managed care program, CHC gives individuals the choice of health plans to best match all their health care and long-term care needs.
Members located in this zone are invited to attend a community meeting to learn about the CHC program and have an opportunity to ask questions. If you wish to attend one of these community meetings, a list of dates and locations are available on the event registration page. Most locations have two sessions — a morning session and an afternoon session. Each session will run for approximately two hours. Space is limited; if you are not planning to attend alone, please be sure that each additional person registers as well. You can view the invitation that was sent to CHC participants here.
