For Individuals with Disabilities and their Families
At first, many people with disabilities may have a difficult time finding a doctor or dentist who knows how to accommodate their needs. You may want to share this website with your provider.
If you have Medical Assistance (MCO) services in Pennsylvania, try calling your health insurance company and asking for the Special Needs Unit (SNU). Let them know you are having difficulty trying to find a medical or dental provider. They can often help. If you have private insurance, tell someone you need extra support finding the right doctor.
If you have insurance, your first and best resource is your insurance company. You want to make sure any medical provider you want to visit accepts your insurance.
