State Budget Update

On Friday June 28, Governor Wolf signed the state budget.

State funded CILs received a 2% increase.

Both Assistive Technology (AT) program: Financing (PATF, over 5%) and Demonstration and Training (Temple University, Tech Owl, above 9%) got increases.

For PA DHS OLTL programs, CHC received a 2% increase for providers and attendants in agency model programs, effective January 1, 2020.

As of this writing, we are still looking to verify if the 2% increase will be for consumer model programs, Medicaid Waivers in Fee For Service (OBRA, Attendant Care and Aging Waivers), Act 150 (Non-Waiver Attendant Care) programs and current CHC providers /attendants in regions 1 and 2.
