NJ Personal Care Assistant Legislation A320/S1018 Awaits Governor’s Signature

Submitted by Louise Lindenmeier, Director, Government Affairs (GAO)

As we continue on our PCA journey for increased reimbursement rates, the next effort to increase the PCA reimbursement rate now sits on the governor’s desk. A320/S1018 would require the minimum reimbursement rate for PCA in managed Medicaid to be no lower than the state’s fee-for-service rate. Currently, we are asking all the PCA aides and clients to sign and send letters to the governor’s office, urging him to sign the legislation into law.
