Survey of Child Residential Program Utilization Trends
October 6, 2006

The implementation of Medicaid Realignment and the expansion of behavioral health managed care have had a substantial impact on the demand, utilization, and occupancy of residential services in Pennsylvania. PCPA is conducting a survey of residential service providers to gauge the change in the service system and the impact on the provider community. The survey is open to all agencies offering Residential Treatment Facilities (JCAHO accredited and non-JCAHO), residential care funded by county children and youth or juvenile justice service contracts, and host home and treatment group home services funded through Medicaid.

Residential service provider agencies can participate in this online survey by logging on to www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=377482676132.

The survey will be conducted throughout the months of October and November. PCPA encourages all providers, whether members of the association or not, to complete the survey. Agencies completing the survey can include contact information and will be sent a copy of the analysis of the survey when it becomes available.

For additional information or questions, contact Connell O'Brien.
