September 30, 2010

The September Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Committee meeting featured a presentation by Ruth Granfors, Esq. of legal firm and PCPA business member K&L Gates LLP. Ms. Granfors’ presentation is about filing Medicaid appeals through the Department of Public welfare (DPW) Bureau of Hearings and Appeals. Video of this presentation is available to members through PCPA’s Vimeo account.

In the presentation of approximately one hour, Ms. Granfors addresses details of the hearing and appeal process including:

  • The definition of an aggrieved party,
  • The time requirements to complete filings,
  • Cases that can be expedited, and
  • The process available to DPW to review decisions.

Interested employees of PCPA member agencies are encouraged to view the video. Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact Linda Drummond (717-364-3280 or linda@paproviders.org). PCPA will create videos of future meetings and special events to reach employees from member agencies that are unable to attend.
