What is the OPs Memo?
The OPs Memo (Operations Memorandum) is an additional contractual requirement/clarification to the PA
Medicaid, Mandatory Managed Care (HealthChoices) Program. This requirement became effective in 2009
and is monitored by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (PA DPW), Office of Medical Assistance
Programs, (OMAP). It was written to address the issues that youth with special health care needs (YSHCN)
may encounter when transitioning from pediatric to adult health care.
