New Vitae Wellness and Recovery Now Accepts Waivers for PaymentJune 20, 2016
New Vitae Wellness and Recovery has increased options for services and payment and now is accepting OBRA, COMMCARE, and Independence Waivers to assist with service costs. Each of the three waivers serves a specific population of Pennsylvania residents and can reduce costs to participate in Action Recovery supports.
OBRA waivers provide supports for individuals with developmental challenges, including individuals diagnosed with a disorder on the Autism Spectrum (Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Asperger's, or Autism). The OBRA waiver also can connect individuals with physical health concerns to safe, supportive services that may enable them to maintain their independence.
COMMCARE waivers facilitate services for individuals who experience the effects of traumatic or acquired brain injuries. Brain injuries frequently can impact one's functioning in a variety of domains, including mobility, communication, or self-care. The COMMCARE waiver program recognizes these challenges and seeks to connect families and individuals with therapeutic services.
Independence waivers support individuals, age 18 to 60, who have been diagnosed with a physical health challenge. These physical health concerns impact daily functioning and may require service coordination or respite services.
Independence, COMMCARE, and OBRA waiver programs assist individuals in finding linkages to effective, individualized supports.
"New Vitae Wellness and Recovery has served individuals with brain injuries, intellectual DisAbilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders for more than 30 years," said Judith Yanacek, President and CEO. "Now that we have been approved as a waiver provider for OBRA, COMMCARE, and Independence, we are hopeful that more people in need of services will be afforded New Vitae Wellness and Recovery's holistic care."
New Vitae Wellness and Recovery's Action Recovery services promote wellness for those who have been diagnosed with a brain injury, intellectual disability or an autism spectrum disorder.
