Increase the Personal Needs Allowance!
The personal needs allowance (PNA) is the amount of income a Medicaid recipient is allowed to keep to maintain their housing, utilities, transportation, and other needs.

The current in-home PNA for an unmarried individual is dangerously low at $1,074 for 2021. This is clearly not enough for our clients to afford housing, food, and basic personal necessities. As a result, some potential home care clients end up in nursing homes or other institutions because they can’t afford rent – or go without care entirely.

Ask your legislators to increase the Personal Needs Allowance for in-home Medicaid clients to eliminate or reduce client participation and co-pays!
