The Medical Assistance (MA) Bulletin posted on 10-22-2021 applies to all providers that render personal care services (PCS) to beneficiaries in the fee-for-service (FFS) delivery system, including Agency with Choice and Vendor Fiscal/Employer Agent financial management services organizations that provide PCS to MA participants who are enrolled in an Office of Developmental Program or Office of Long-Term Living waiver, the Act 150 Program, or a Community HealthChoices managed care organization.
The purpose of the bulletin is to:

- Advise providers of an updated Provider Assistance Center (PAC) contact e-mail for their use.
Providers rendering PCS in the managed care delivery system should address any questions regarding ESCs for PCS subject to EVV with the applicable managed care organization.
