Attention PA Medical Assistance funded Psychiatric Rehabilitation Service providers  

 In the last OMHSAS Networking call, held January 18, 2022, OMHSAS announced that the Commonwealth will provide American Rescue Plan funds to four levels of community based mental health services: Family Based, Mobile Crisis, Psych Rehab and IBHS.

The webinar was recorded and can be accessed at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEly6Q32yIc 

The related press release can be accessed at: https://www.media.pa.gov/pages/dhs_details.aspx?newsid=779   

  • Retrieve the Attestation Form from the OMHSAS RA email (coming to providers registered in the PROMISe Medical  Assistance system) or by regular USPS mail, in the week ending January 21.  Check spam filter and junk files.  
  • Deadline to sign and submit the Attestation Form is Tuesday February1, 2022. 

If any provider does not get the form, ask for one via the RA account:

[email protected]

If you have more than one PROMISe # location for Psych Rehab Services, look for and complete a separate form for each. If your agency delivers more than one of the four listed services, fill out a form for each location of each service.

The attestation form will list the amount of money your agency will be awarded for each service location. Funds will come directly from the state, not from the MCO.  The form will include guidance for spending the money, which is intended for workforce support (bonus, retention, etc.).

What is Psychiatric Rehabilitation?

Psychiatric Rehabilitation is a strengths-based community mental health service focused on helping an individual living with a mental illness to create the necessary positive changes in skills and resources that will lead to success and satisfaction in chosen roles within the Psychiatric Rehabilitation domains. Psychiatric Rehabilitation services are driven by the individual and based on personal preferences and choice. The Psychiatric Rehabilitation process is founded in hope and the belief that all individuals can utilize a recovery journey to enhance their own quality of life. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services are based upon a professional Code of Ethics developed by PRA.
