Private Duty Nursing (PDN)

Private Duty Nursing (PDN) is substantial, complex, and continuous skilled nursing care provided in the home for medically fragile Medicaid beneficiaries. This service is considered supplemental to the care provided by a beneficiary’s family or designated caregivers, and allows the beneficiary to remain in their residence rather than an institution. Prior approval (PA) is required for PDN services, and is granted based on the beneficiary’s medical necessity and fragility.
