Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) Communication 19-152 announces that the final public notice for fee schedule rates and Department-established fees have been published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
A public notice will appear in the Pennsylvania Bulletin Volume 49, Number 47 on Saturday, November 23, 2019. The notice informs stakeholders of the final Fee Schedule Rates and Department-established fees. The title of the notice is Fee Schedule Rates and Department-Established Fees for Consolidated, Community Living and Person/Family Directed Support Waivers Services, Targeted Support Management and the Community Intellectual Disability Base-Funded Program.
The final Fee Schedule Rates and Department-established fees represent the maximum rates that the Department will pay and can be accessed on the Department’s website. Please note that the link in the public notice is no longer accurate as the DHS website was updated in the past week.

When the data is updated, the Department will publish a notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin of the Fee Schedule Rates.
