TO: Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) Service Coordinators and Direct Service Providers in the Attendant Care, Independence, and OBRA Waivers and the Act 150 Program
SUBJECT: HCSIS 2018 / 2019 Fiscal Year Renewals
This notice is being sent to alert Service Coordinators and Providers that the Service Plan Review Unit is still in the process of reviewing the 2018 / 2019 Fiscal Year renewals in HCSIS. Approximately 17% of this year’s Annual Review service plans have not yet been authorized. While OLTL expects to be current in the next 3-4 weeks, Service Coordinators may submit Temporary Service Authorizations to Providers to ensure that services continue uninterrupted, and OLTL will approve any existing unincreased services retroactive to 7/1/18. OLTL requests that Service Coordinators confirm that all participants’ Annual Reviews have been submitted for our review. Public Partnerships (PPL) is receiving authorizations on a daily basis. Please contact [log in to unmask] with any concerns regarding a specific plan.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
