LIFE-NWPA is authorized to administer Medicare/Medicaid covered benefits and services. 

If you are admitted to a nursing facility, you may be liable for a patient pay amount as determined by the State of Pennsylvania.  Additionally, a LIFE participant may be fully liable for the cost of medical services from an out-of-network provider or without previous authorization (except for emergency services).

LIFE-NWPA’s physician-based care teams interview prospective participants and recommend individualized, preventative care. Learn more about our Services.
