Medicaid Update: New Form for Ordering Medicaid (PCA) Services

Friday, June 3, 2011

As part of a multifocal initiative to improve the delivery of personal care services to DC Medicaid beneficiaries, the Department of Health Care Finance has developed a new Prescription Form for Medicaid Personal Care Aide Services. This form is to be used by a patient’s physician or nurse practitioner to order the delivery of Medicaid PCA services to patients. Current regulations require PCA services to be ordered by a physician or advanced practice registered nurse; i.e., nurse practitioner.   Use of the new form is required effective June 30, 2011.
