The Pennsylvania Code website reflects the Pennsylvania Code changes effective through 51 Pa.B. 1768 (March 27, 2021).

55 Pa. Code § 4300.135. Actual costs.

§ 4300.135. Actual costs.

 The intention of this method is to determine and assign the actual costs related to the provision of mental health or intellectual disability services. Once a county program has developed and implemented a methodology for apportionment based on actual costs, it may not assign costs according to a proportion of program costs methodology. Costs shall be assigned as follows:

   (1)  Costs which can be readily identified as mental health or intellectual disability shall be appropriately assigned.

   (2)  Time records or a random time study shall be used to apportion individual staff salaries, benefits, and operating and fixed asset expenses related to staff. Time which cannot be assigned, not to exceed 25% of available time, can be ignored in developing an apportionment ratio.

   (3)  Other costs shall be apportioned based on the overall ratio resulting from the assignment of costs in paragraphs (1) and (2).


   The provisions of this §  4300.135 amended under sections 201(2) and (8) and 202 of the Mental Health and Intellectual Disability Act of 1966 (50 P.S. § §  4201(2) and (8) and 4202).


   The provisions of this §  4300.135 amended June 17, 2016, effective June 18, 2016, 46 Pa.B. 3177. Immediately preceding text appears at serial page (213215).
