The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has informed RCPA that the final rates for services that will be impacted by the ending of Appendix K, which includes CPS, transportation, and Residential Needs Group 5, will be published in the PA Bulletin this weekend. The rates were first published as proposed rates in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, Volume 53, Number 21, on Saturday, May 27, 2023.
In some cases, these rate changes will require a critical revision to Individual Support Plans (ISP). Information regarding implementing Needs Group 5 for individuals served in residential habilitation with exceptional needs is outlined in ODP Announcement 23- 083.
Please watch for an announcement from ODP with additional information this weekend.
