Participating Provider Agreement
   
 
A Participating Provider Agreement (PPA) is a legal and binding agreement used by the Bureau of Family Health to pay for health services based on a fee schedule. 
 
By signing a PPA, the provider agrees to deliver services as set forth in their PPA.  Services are reimbursed based on a condition-specific fee schedule that delineates the approved procedure and the maximum allowable fee.  

The Bureau has three condition-specific PPA agreements:

  1. Chronic Renal Disease - Medical Services 
  2. Chronic Renal Disease - Transportation
  3. Head Injury Program
To be reimbursed for services provided, the provider must have a current PPA and the patient must be enrolled with the Bureau at the time of service.
 
All service providers wishing to do business with the Commonwealth, must be registered with the Central Vendor Management Unit (CVMU) and the Department of State (DOS). If you are not already registered, you must do this before you can enter into an agreement with the Bureau.
