This page contains all the information you will need to apply for the Chronic Renal Disease Medical Services PPA.
Note: The files listed below are in Adobe PDF format. You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer system in order to access, view and print the files. Click here for information on obtaining Adobe Acrobat Reader.
To enter into a PPA, you must (1) complete the agreement, several appendices and attachments, (2) sign the agreement and (3) return it to the Bureau.
All necessary information and forms are available online. All documents can be downloaded as either Adobe Acrobat or Microsoft Word files and printed.
Providers are responsible for submitting a COMPLETE and ACCURATE agreement. Please comply with all the directions on the instructions page, including the submission of the mandatory appendices and attachments. Incomplete or inaccurate PPAs cannot be processed.
Providers who submit an incomplete PPA will receive a letter requesting the missing items required to complete processing. If a provider does not respond timely to this request for additional information, the agreement will be rejected and returned. To reapply, the provider will need to start the process over and complete an entirely new PPA.
If you have an existing PPA with the Bureau of Family Health with an upcoming expiration date, you should receive a letter approximately three months prior to that date notifying you that your PPA is about to expire. To obtain a new PPA, please follow the steps listed below. Once the PPA forms are submitted correctly, you will receive a new PPA number and new effective and termination dates. If you have any questions about the process please call 717-772-2762. The Bureau will only process invoices with dates of service that fall within the effective and termination dates of a fully executed agreement.
