Support for individuals with a wide range of health and physical issues is available including accessible housing. We will review each person's needs to determine if we can provide the supports and services required.
Individuals requiring acute medical care or who can be identified as having one or more of the stated Exclusionary Criteria may exceed the level of care provided. However, applicants are evaluated and reviewed by the clinical, residential, and medical teams on a case by case basis in determining appropriateness for the particular support or service that is under consideration for admission.
Any individual whose condition or behaviors would jeopardize the safety and welfare of themselves or others may not be eligible for admission. These may include the following:
For individuals receiving Pennsylvania Medicaid Waivers, they must be eligible for Social Security, Social Security for Disabled Individuals (SSDI), or Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI). Individuals who do not have current or valid medical insurance may be denied admission.
Funding and Eligibility for Waivers

Each admission to Devereux can vary in the progression of the steps, information required, and the time needed to complete the admissions process. The Admissions Department will respond to an applicant's initial call or receipt of a referral within 24 to 48 hours, unless there is an urgent situation in which an applicant needs services immediately.
The following steps are usually involved in the Admissions process:
The Individual Support Plan (ISP) is completed within 30-60 days of admission. This is a collaborative process with the participation of interested family members, the individual, Adult Services’ interdisciplinary team and an individual’s representatives. Goals and outcomes are developed in the ISP and are reviewed regularly.
The process begins at the time of admission and involves the individual, the family and appropriate agency representatives. Criteria established at the Individual Support Planning Meetings are reviewed quarterly.
