SCO Committee Clarification
The December 10, 2015, 9:00-11:00 am SCO Committee meeting is for RCPA’s Supports Coordination Organizations that are ODP funded. It is not for Service Coordination under the OLTL waivers.
A class action lawsuit filed against the state in 2009, Benjamin v. Department of Public Welfare, with a settlement agreement finalized in 2014, focuses on transitioning 80 individuals from state centers to the community by June 30, 2015. Since these transfers were not accomplished, an independent reviewer has been retained by the settlement parties to address the reasons and seek recommendations.
