Rescission of the Statements of Policy Clarifying Reserved Bed Days Under 2176 Waiver
[39 Pa.B. 3174]
[Saturday, June 27, 2009]
This statement of policy applies to administrative entity (AE) directors and administrators and providers of Residential Habilitation services funded through the Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support (P/FDS) Waivers.
The purpose of this statement of policy is to rescind 55 Pa. Code Chapter 6000, Subchapter B regarding reserved bed day procedures for hospitalization and therapeutic leave under 2176 waiver (§§ 6000.201--6000.203); and Subchapter P regarding procedures for funding reserved hospital and leave days under 2176 waiver (§ 6000.841).
As a condition of approving renewal of the Consolidated and P/FDS waivers, the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) directed that the Department of Public Welfare develop a Statewide rate-setting methodology for both waivers. The procedures for the standardized rate-setting methodology will include policies for funding reserved bed days.
Because the standardized rate-setting methodology will include procedures for funding reserved bed days for the waivers, these statements of policy are no longer needed.
This statement of policy is effective for rates for waiver-funded residential habilitation services that are effective as of July 1, 2009.
