The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is disseminating communication ODPANN 20-113 – “Public Comment Starts December 18, 2020 for Proposed Amendments to the Intellectual Disabilities and Autism (ID/A) Waivers and Adult Autism Waiver”. The purpose of this communication is to announce that proposed amendments to the consolidated, person/family directed (P/FD), community living, and adult autism waivers effective March 1, 2021, will be available for review and comment starting on December 18, 2020. This date will begin a 30-day public comment period that will end on January 18, 2021.
Information regarding the proposed waiver amendment changes, including how to provide comments, can be found in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, Volume 50, Number 50 published on Saturday, December 12, 2020 on this webpage.
This publication was released earlier than anticipated, and as a result, waiver documents with proposed changes are not currently available on the Department of Human Services (DHS) website. For this reason, the start of the public comment period will be delayed until December 18, 2020 when all needed information will be available on the DHS website. Another communication will be published on December 18, 2020; it will provide more information about the changes proposed in the waiver amendments and the public comment process.
