DHS Issues MA Bulletin on Update to ACCESS ID Card

On June 24, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) issued MA Bulletin 99-20-08: Update to the Medical Assistance ACCESS ID Card. Beginning this summer, DHS will begin distribution of redesigned MA ACCESS identification cards to new MA beneficiaries as well as those needing a replacement card. Yellow ACCESS cards will remain valid for all other MA beneficiaries. The new cards are designed to be more visually appealing and to resemble a credit or debit card to reduce stigma.
