Pam Gilbert, Fiscal Manager at the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), has shared the following message:

It has come to my attention that there is a problem on FY 2020–2021 Form ID-46, Schedule 19-A with the formulas at the bottom not summarizing by cost center. Cost reporting forms were sent out on August 5; therefore, in order to correct the error:

  1. If you haven’t started preparing your cost reports, simply use the new file named ID-46 Form rev 07_2021a.xlsx, instead of the one without the ‘a’ which was emailed on 8/5.
  2. If you have started setting up your files and entering data, you will not have to repeat any work. Simply follow these steps:
    1. Open the ODP_ID-46FixMacro. (It does contain a macro so you may receive a warning.)
    2. Open the ID-46 file to be corrected.
    3. Click Enable Editing if yellow bar is visible at the top.
    4. Press Ctrl-Shift-F (Macro will run and make a correction on Sch 19-A, Sch 19-B, and return to Cert schedule).
    5. Save your ID-46 file.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact me.

From Deputy Secretary Kristin Ahrens:

Thank you again for all your support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As PA DOH and DHS prepare for the potential for updated vaccine guidance from the CDC, we request that all Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCFs), Congregate Care Facilities, and Residential Providers fill out the below one-time survey discussing each facility or community home’s vaccine access plan. The survey consists of only a few questions and should take no more than 3 minutes of your time.

Survey: https://form.jotform.com/212066323150139

Long-Term Care and Congregate Care Facilities are asked to share the following information about vaccine access in their facilities:

  • Plan for accessing COVID-19 vaccine doses for residents
  • Who will administer the COVID-19 vaccine at the facility

Please respond to this survey no later than Tuesday, August 17.

Please notify PA DOH if you have any questions about the survey or how to access the COVID-19 vaccines with the subject of the email “Long Term Care Facility Survey Questions.”

Thank you for all of the work you’ve done to vaccinate residents and community members during this pandemic.
