RCPA - Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association


IDD Updates
May 10, 2011

On May 6, the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) sent the 2011/12 provider contracts for both direct service and SCO (Supports Coordination Organizations) providers which are to be signed and returned no later than June 1. Since SCOs are moving to state-set rates effective July 1, PCPA has asked Department of Public Welfare (DPW) Acting Secretary Alexander and  ODP Interim Deputy Secretary Friel to release these rates as soon as possible to allow agencies to determine their ability to continue this service and sign the contracts.
