To qualify for Family Based Mental Health, the child/adolescent must be MA (Medical Assistance) eligible and enrolled in Health Choices. There is no out-of-pocket expense to the family. Please visit the PA Department of Public Welfare
website for information on eligibility and how to apply.
Since the application process can be rather cumbersome, Philhaven’s Community & Family Liaison Mindy Hilyard may be contacted at 717-475-4242 by families that need assistance with the process. In particular, a call is recommended for families who have a child that qualifies due to a severe emotional disorder.
