Proposed PCA rules


MassHealth has proposed rules to exclude only family members who are legally liable for the support of the MassHealth recipient, such as a spouse or the parent of a minor child,  from being personal care attendants.  This is a liberalization of the current rule which excludes family members who are not legally liable such as the adult child of a parent on MassHealth. The proposed effective date is March 1, 2006. Comments are accepted through January 23, 2006. For more info, see:
