CMS Delay in Implementation of Fourth Waiver Amendments for ODP Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support Waivers
The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has not received approval from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the fourth set of waiver amendments to the Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support Waivers. The proposed effective date of these amendments is July 1, 2015. The new clarifications and requirements contained in these waiver amendments should not be implemented until ODP has received approval from CMS.
ODP requests that no changes outlined in the Fourth Waiver Amendments be implemented until the Office of Developmental Programs receives confirmation of the Waiver Amendments’ approval by CMS. ODP will release additional communications when this occurs.
