[Saturday, January 28, 2017]
The Department of Human Services (Department) is providing final notice of the Fee Schedule Rates for Targeted Service Management and select services funded through the Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support waivers as well as the Department-established fees for residential ineligible services, effective July 1, 2016. These Fee Schedule Rates also serve as the Department-established fees under 55 Pa. Code § 4300.115(a) (relating to Department established fees) for base-funded services managed through county programs for individuals with an intellectual disability under the Mental Health and Intellectual Disability Act of 1966 (50 P.S. §§ 4104—4704), 55 Pa. Code Chapter 4300 (relating to county mental health and intellectual disability fiscal manual) and 55 Pa. Code Chapter 51 (relating to Office of Developmental Programs home and community-based services).
The Department published its proposed Fee Schedule Rates and Department-established fees for residential ineligible services at 46 Pa.B. 3373 (June 25, 2016). The Department will implement the Fee Schedule Rates and Department-established fees announced in the notice of proposed rates.
The Department received one letter requesting information about how the Fee Schedule Rates and Department-established fees were calculated and how increases in costs were factored into the rates of services. The Department previously explained the methodology for developing the rates in the public notice published at 46 Pa.B. 3373, and therefore, will not be providing additional information in this notice.
