    Waiver Information

    Waivers offer an array of services and benefits such as choice of qualified providers, due process, and health and safety assurances.

    The name waiver comes from the fact that the federal government "waives" Medical Assistance/Medicaid rules for institutional care in order for Pennsylvania to use the same funds to provide supports and services for people closer to home in their own communities.

    In Pennsylvania, the Department of Public Welfare administers multiple Medical Assistance/Medicaid waivers. Each waiver has its own unique set of eligibility requirements and services.

    Please use the links at the bottom of the page to review each of the waivers.

    Request for Application - Financial Management Services

    The Department of Public Welfare is committed to ensuring the health and safety of consumers who are receiving services through home-and-community-based waivers and state funded programs, therefore the DPW has submitted a Request for Application for Financial Management Services. The Request for Application, or RFA, will ensure that financial management services are consistent and streamlined across all waivers and the Act 150 program.

    To learn more about the RFA and how to apply, please visit the PA e-marketplace and select Solicitations, then select Public Welfare under the agency tab or type in the RFA solicitation number.
