Expanding Access to High-Quality Services

The Department of Human Services is committed to make sure all Pennsylvanians have access to high-quality services. What that means for you is:

  • You have physical and behavioral health care that fits your needs. Since Governor Wolf expanded Medicaid, more than 700,000 Pennsylvanians have access to health care coverage through HealthChoices.
  • A focus on the quality of health care providers. We are working hard to make sure the people providing care for your medical needs are focused on the outcomes of your health, not how quick they can turn the services around.
  • Ensuring working parents have access to safe and reliable child care. DHS places a high priority on improving the quality of early care and education programs for children so they enter kindergarten ready to succeed. After participating in high-quality Keystone STAR 3 and 4 programs, the percentage of 4-year-olds with proficient language, math and social skills doubled to 78 percent in 2013-14.
