Retro Payment for PCAs

On July 22, 2021, MassHealth announced the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) provided a temporary 10% PCA wage increase retroactive to July 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021. The increase brings the PCA hourly rate to $17.71 per hour. A retro payment will be made to any PCA paid for July dates for service paid prior to the announcement. The retro rate of pay will be the difference between the $16.10 per hour originally paid and the new rate of $17.71, $1.61 per hour. These payments will be made during the week of August 9 through August 13, 2021. Please see the pay rates by date below and the informational flyer created by MassHealth below.
