Recommendations for Minnesota’s Personal Care Assistance Program from PCA Provider Survey: Interim Report #3
Minnesota Department of Human Services
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS), Disability Services Division contracted with The Lewin Group to conduct a study of the infrastructure of the State’s Medicaid State Plan Personal Care Assistance (PCA) program. This study analyzes the drivers of Medical Assistance expenditures in the State’s PCA program and provides recommendations to inform legislation to strengthen the PCA program.
This report is the last of several interim reports that Lewin submitted to DHS, in addition to a comprehensive final report. This report focuses on provider agency perspectives and related recommendations to strengthen and improve provider-related components of the program, and analyses of the types of living arrangements in which individuals receive PCA services and related recommendations.
