Private Care Services are customized services that are managed and directed by the client or client’s authorized individual. These services are funded privately by an individual or through Long Term Care Insurance coverage. Private Care Individual Service Plans (ISP) include the same Activities of Daily Living (ADL) tasks as the Medicaid funded programs and can include companionship as a task. Additionally, Private Care services can allow for the Personal Care Attendants (PCA) to use clients vehicles to transport the individuals to and from appointments and/or run errands.
Based on geographic location, rates for service vary. Rates are based upon an individual living inside or outside of the local metropolitan service delivery area and electing to receive a 4 hour or greater “BLOCK” of service or a 2 hour or less “VISIT“. Pride PHC Services, Inc. defines the metropolitan services delivery area as being INSIDE or OUTSIDE LOOP 1604.
