Pennsylvania Medicaid Expansion
Medicaid Expansion:
Pennsylvania does not participate in Medicaid Expansion under provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
For additional background on the State’s policy decisions regarding the Medicaid Expansion option, see: Background.
 
Medicaid in Pennsylvania:
The Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare administers the Medicaid Program, called Medical Assistance Programs. Information about Medical Assistance Programs can be found at: http://www.dpw.state.pa.us/foradults/healthcaremedicalassistance/.
Provider Participation:
Providers must enroll in the Medicaid fee-for-service program to receive payments for covered services. Information about enrolling in the Medical Assistance Programs fee-for-service program can be found at: http://www.dpw.state.pa.us/provider/promise/enrollmentinformation/.
The Medical Assistance Programs’ website provides information about services covered by fee-for-service payments and payment amounts: http://www.dpw.state.pa.us/foradults/healthcaremedicalassistance/.
In order to retain access to all Medicaid patients in the state, providers must also connect to the managed care plans individually.
 
Medicaid Managed Care:
Some Pennsylvania Medicaid Program beneficiaries are enrolled in managed care plans, called HealthChoices.
Some managed care plans cover individual Pennsylvania counties and independent cities. The Medical Assistance Programs website has jurisdictional information: http://www.dpw.state.pa.us/provider/healthcaremedicalassistance/managedcareinformation/.
Pennsylvania HealthChoices Beneficiaries Participating in Managed Care:
Managed care plans participating in HealthChoices offer detailed information about covered benefits for individuals enrolling in their plans. This information is available on the managed care websites shown below.
