RCPA - Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association


IDD Update
June 20, 2012

On May 30 PCPA sent Office of Develpmental Programs (ODP)-funded members an IDA Coalition FY 2012/13 Fee Schedule Survey  to be completed and returned to Linda Drummond. The purpose is to assist PCPA efforts to keep the legislature informed regarding funding needs that should be included in the 2012/13 budget and to determine the financial impact on providers and continuation of services.  If you have not completed and returned this survey either to Ms. Drummond or another provider association (let her know if you did), please do so as soon as possible.

ODP Updates are available at www.odpconsulting.net.
