Medicaid waivers still on hold after PCA moratorium lifted

SITKA, ALASKA For Alaskan residents and service providers, the lifting of the federal moratorium on Personal Care Assistance applications this month comes as good news. But it is only partial relief for those who need any of the wide array of Medicaid services offered under the waivers program.
