One of the most critical elements of Pennsylvania's CMS approved waivers is the addition of competency requirements for staff to provide supports to people with complex needs. The waivers have incorporated the National Association for the Dually Diagnosed (NADD) competency certifications as one of the staff credentialing processes. This is achieved through the use of an Acuity Based Rate Structure.
To help PAR Member Organizations, PAR has negotiated an exclusive agreement for PAR members only which provides 20% discounts, with offer code
for PAR members seeking NADD Accreditation or Certification on the following:
- Accreditation Application Fees
- Acrreditation Surveyor Fee
- Accreditation Maintenance Fee
- Clinical Certification
- Dual Diagnosis Specialist Certification
- Direct Support Professional Certification
PAR, NADD and ODP believe the inclusion of Dual Diagnosis Certification and Accreditation will have a direct impact upon improving the quality and professionalism of services provided to Pennsylvania citizens with ID/A, and substantially improve the supports and services to individuals with both mental health and ID/A diagnoses.
