Part B Services

  • Part B of the Katie Beckett Program will serve children with disabilities or complex medical needs.
  • Children in Part B will not be enrolled in Medicaid. They would receive up to $10,000 a year in services for their child.
  • Families will have the flexibility to choose any or all of the following services within their budget:  premium assistance, a health-care savings type account, reimbursement for services that would benefit the child but can’t be covered under a health-care savings account, consumer-directed respite, and supportive home care services, or an array of services from a community-based provider.

DIDD utilizes Public Partnerships LLC (PPL) as the fiscal entity responsible for payment of premium assistance, reimbursement for services not covered in the HRA, and consumer-directed respite and supportive home care.

PPL's customer service team may be reached at or 1-888-866-0647 to assist with questions regarding enrollment forms and payment information for consumer-directed services.

Other questions about these services can be directed to your Katie Beckett case manager.
