PAS RATES ADVOCACY
PAS RATE ADVOCACY ACTION
As you know Personal Assistance Services (PAS) and Home & Community Based Services (HCBS) cost one-half to one-third that of nursing home placement. Consumers prefer to age in place, in their own homes. Since the last increase to any of the PAS or HCBS rates agencies have had to pay more for criminal background and child clearance checks, pay for additional training and provide employer mandated benefits. Agencies and consumers need assistance in keeping qualified and trained direct care workers to keep our most vulnerable consumers at home.
PA-PCA in conjunction with the efforts their PAS Rates Committee is asking that you contact your local legislators and the Administration to ask them to do more to get an adequate rate increase by clicking on this link.
