Professional Healthcare Resources participates in the Medicaid Waiver Program, which is personal care approved and authorized by Medicaid services in Washington, DC (coming soon in Maryland and Virginia.) Medicaid Waivers help provide services to people who would otherwise be in a nursing home or hospital to receive long-term care in the community. These waivers are called home- and community-based services (HCBS). All of the HCB waiver programs are authorized under Section 1915 of the Social Security Act and are fee-for-service programs, meaning that the provider is paid by Medicaid and not the individual receiving services.Learn More
