On December 15, 2018, ODP published rates as final for "Fee Schedule Rates for Targeted Support Management and select services funded through the Consolidated, Community Living, and Person/Family Directed Support waivers and Department established fees for residential habilitation ineligible services."
AZTAC notes that it appears that there are some typographical errors in the notice, so a revision could possibly be issued.
In short, the fee scheduled rates for Consolidated Waiver programs have remained the same for FY 2018-2019 as they were in FY 2017-2018, with the following major exception applicable to the "Department-established fees" for residential ineligible services:
For Residential ineligible services, the FY 2017-2018 fees will continue for July 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018 and effective January 1, 2019, the fees will be increased by 10% for the following counties: Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia and Pike. These counties will be known as "Area 1" and all other counties will be known as "Area 2." Please refer to the complete notice for information.
