LIFE Butler County

LIFE Butler County

LIFE means Living Independence for the Elderly, and LIFE Butler County is an innovative health plan that provides care and services which allow eligible seniors to live safely in their homes 24-hours a day, seven days a week. LIFE Butler County helps eligible older adults who are living at home by managing their complex medical, functional and social needs. Participants have a full range of medical, social and rehabilitation services available to them* including:

  • Comprehensive medical care
  • Adult day services
  • Support care in the participant's home
  • Meals
  • Recreational programs
  • Transportation to and from the LIFE Center where medical needs can be met

Even if a participant requires hospital or nursing care, LIFE Butler County manages, arranges and monitors the individual's plan of care. We help make life easier for caregivers and we support the family's efforts to provide care for their loved one. Services can be provided at the LIFE Center, at home, through outpatient and specialty services and inpatient settings when necessary. For more information please call 724-287-5433.

Fee for the Program:

*What you pay for LIFE depends on your financial situation. LIFE uses Medicare, Medicaid and private funds to cover all of your medically-necessary care and services. You can have either Medicare or Medicaid or both to join LIFE. If you don't qualify for Medicaid, you will be charged a monthly premium to cover the long-term care portion of the LIFE benefit and a premium for Medicare Part D drugs. However, in LIFE there is never a deductible or co-payment for any medication, service, or care provided by the LIFE interdisciplinary team. (In some cases, there may be a monthly premium required to participate in the program based on your income.) All services provided or arranged by LIFE are fully covered when approved by the LIFE interdisciplinary team. The only exception is if you move to a nursing home, in which case there is a monthly co-pay to LIFE. If you don't qualify financially, there is an option for private pay.

LIFE enrollees must agree to receive all needed health care, including primary care and specialty physician services (other than emergency services) from LIFE and its providers. Participants may be fully and personally liable for the costs of unauthorized services or those outisde of the LIFE network.

Enrollment in LIFE is volunary and you may disenroll at any time.

LIFE (Living Independence for the Elderly) is provided and funded through a unique agreement with Medicare and Medicaid.
