PPL & Attendants

Public Partnerships (PPL) is the Fiscal Agent for all of your Medicaid CCC Plus, CL & FIS Waiver Services.  As the fiscal agent, PPL  disperses payment to your attendant.  It is Moms In Motions job as your Service Facilitator to:

  1. Get you set up with PPL.
  2. Train you on Time Sheets. (Fill them out online or by hand. Blank Time Sheet and Sample Guide)
    1. For personalized time sheets, follow the instructions below:
      1. Consumer / EOR / SF log on to the PPL Web Portal.
      2. For Consumer / EOR, click on “Consumer Forms” on the green header bar. For SFs, go to the “Print Forms” tab at the bottom of your Consumer’s profile.
      3. You will see the forms list to view/print.
      4. Select “Time Sheet” by clicking in the box.
      5. Hit “Print” at the bottom of the forms box or to the right (view/print).
      6. This will bring up one PDF document to view/print which will include time sheets for all attendants.
      7. The Consumer can print all or use the printer to select the individual page/attendant they would like to print.
      8. The time sheets can be re-used – they do not have to be printed out each pay period.
      9. Re-print these forms on a regular basis!! Fading headers on time sheets account for a high number of time sheets that cannot be read by the teleforms reader and therefore have to be entered manually.
  3. Train you on the rules of the program.
