Access Answers to Pennsylvania’s Medical Assistance Eligibility Handbook Here


The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services’ (DHS) seven program offices administer services that provide care and support to Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable individuals and families. The program offices are Administration, Child Development and Early Learning, Children, Youth and Families, Developmental Programs, Income Maintenance (IM), Long Term Living, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, and the Office of Medical Assistance Programs (OMAP). OMAP and IM work in tandem to oversee and provide healthcare coverage for eligible consumers. Enrollment assisters have access to the Medical Assistance Eligibility Handbook to review enrollment requirements, program descriptions, and consumer rights and responsibilities.
