CHC Information

COMMUNITY HEALTHCHOICES (CHC) is a new initiative that will increase opportunities for older Pennsylvanians and individuals with physical disabilities to remain in their homes. CHC will use managed care organizations (MCOs) to coordinate physical health care and long-term services and supports (LTSS). To provide services to CHC participants, providers will need to join the network(s) of CHC MCOs:  AmeriHealth Caritas; PA Health & Wellness ; UPMC for You
