[Saturday, August 7, 2021]
In accordance with the Pennsylvania Caregiver Support Act (62 P.S. §§ 3061—3068) (amended June 11, 2021, P.L. 52, No. 20), the Department of Aging is announcing its intent to change the maximum amount available to a qualified primary caregiver for out-of-pocket expenses incurred for services and the lifetime amount for home modifications or assistive devices. The new maximum amounts will be effective August 10, 2021.
The updated maximum reimbursement amounts are as follows:
1) The maximum monthly reimbursement amount (based on the caregiver's calculated reimbursement percentage) will increase to $600.
2) The maximum lifetime reimbursement amount (based on the caregiver's calculated reimbursement percentage) for home modifications or assistive devices will increase to $5,000.
There is no fiscal impact for these changes. The amount of funding available for this program is dependent upon the funds appropriated by the General Assembly and the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living.
