Are You Eligible?
To qualify to become a LIFE Geisinger participant, individuals must:
- Be 55 years of age or older
- Live within the designated service territory in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Columbia, Montour, Northumberland, and Schuykill Counties
- Be able to live safely within the community with services provided by LIFE Geisinger
- Meet the clinical nursing home criteria as determined by the Area Agency On Aging
Did You Know?For individuals enrolled in Medicaid, the LIFE services are fully covered. However, enrollment in the LIFE program is not limited to individuals who are eligible for, or already enrolled in Medicaid and/or Medicare. Persons not in Medicaid and/or Medicare must privately pay some, or all, of the LIFE services premium. During initial assessment our outreach and enrollment staff can help determine if individuals meet the clinical nursing home requirements.
Everyone's situation is different. Let us answer your individual needs and questions. Call us to see if you or someone you care for is eligible for our services.
We seek to provide efficient and effective delivery of services. In order to do so, LIFE Geisinger must provide and/or arrange for all of your healthcare needs. A participant may be fully and personally liable for the costs of unauthorized or out-of-LIFE program agreement services. This does NOT include emergency services, which do not need to be provided, arranged or pre-approved by LIFE Geisinger.
