   On July 30, 1965, President Johnson signed legislation to establish Medicare for the elderly and Medicaid for low-income adults, children, pregnant women & persons with disabilities.  The 50th Anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid provides us with the opportunity to reflect on the critical role these programs have played in protecting lives, helping people live longer and keeping families strong. To commemorate this anniversary, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

is engaging in conversations with beneficiaries, providers and health experts in order to recognize the impact these two programs have had in transforming our nation’s health care system.

   In the days/weeks ahead, CMS invites you to participate in this celebration by sharing your stories of how Medicare and Medicaid have made a difference.  Stories can be shared by visiting

PA Caregiver Support Program (PCSP)

The first program of its kind to respond directly to the needs of adults caring for elders in the community.  Its purpose is to reinforce - not replace - the care being provided to the older adult at home.  Often times, the caregiver may receive financial reimbursement to help purchase services such as personal and respite care or adult day care and/or to purchase consumable supplies such as incontinence products or OTC (over the counter) products related to caregiving.  In addition, eligible caregivers may receive a one-time grant of up to $2,000 to help pay for home adaptations and devices that ease caregiving tasks and increase the financial independence of the older person.
