391.2 Eligibility Requirements

For both PCHs and Dom Care Homes, the County Assistance Office (CAO) must decide whether the individual meets the following conditions:  55 Pa. Code 299.22



The county Area Agency on Aging (AAA) decides whether an individual is functionally disabled. The Level of Care  Determination  (LCD), formerly called the Level of Care Assessment (LOCA) uses the same forms and actions used for deciding whether someone needs Long Term Care. (See Section 391.3, Application for the Supplement.)


The PCH or Dom Care Home must provide a copy of its certificate of compliance. The certificate shows that the home has followed all rules for providing care.
