Private Living Arrangement
Private Living Arrangements (PLA)
This program allows people to live in their home and receive Medicaid benefits. If the recipient is eligible for full Medicaid benefits, this program can pay for eight (8) prescriptions per month (there are some restrictions, a caseworker will explain), 24 doctor visits per year, hospital visits, routine eye exam and dental care, eyeglasses once every two years and dentures once every 10 years. If the individual is not eligible for this program, they may be eligible to have their Medicare premiums paid if they have Medicare Part A or B.
