Personal Care Services (PCS)

Personal care services (PCS) are provided to eligible beneficiaries to help them stay in their own homes and communities rather than live in institutional settings, such as nursing homes. These resources provide a broad understanding of PCS for providers and the problems that can arise when providing and billing these services. We explain personal care attendant (PCA) requirements, the differences between PCS and home health services, and how to avoid improper billing and payments.
