The Department of Public Welfare wants to make sure people using sign language have access to Medical Assistance (MA) services. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides that supports, aids and services be supplied to people with disabilities so they can access medical services.
Ask for an interpreter when you schedule your appointment. If you have trouble getting an interpreter, you or someone helping you can ask the Department to help find one. Call the Office of Medical Assistance, Bureau of Fee-for-Service Programs and leave a message. Messages are checked daily. If a message is left after normal working hours, we will call you the next day with an interpreter to help you.
If you use a Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO), call the Special Needs unit of your MCO for help.
