Human Services Committee to Hold Meeting on Payment Procedures for Intellectual Disability Services
WHAT: The House Human Services Committee, chaired by Rep. Gene DiGirolamo (R-Bucks), will hold an informational meeting on the funding and payment policies of the Department of Public Welfare’s Office of Developmental Programs.
