Appendix K Flexibility Update!

As a reminder, the pandemic-related flexibility that allows reimbursement to spouses, or parents of children under age 18 for providing personal care services to waiver eligible consumers will end on February 29, 2024. For more information, please visit: https://dmas.virginia.gov/for-providers/long-term-care/waivers/legally-responsible-individuals/.

NOTE: If you are not a parent/step-parent/legal guardian of a consumer that is a minor nor a spouse of the consumer, this change does not apply to you. No action is needed.

VA 2023 W2 Reminder

Notice! If an attendant had wages in 2023 but had no taxable income or taxes, they will not receive a W-2. Because there is nothing to report your W2 would be blank. The IRS does not accept blank W2s.

Please note that all PPL email addresses have changed. Our emails have changed from ending in @pcgus.com to ending in @pplfirst.com. Please change the end of any email you have on file for us to @pplfirst.com or check our Contact Us page to ensure your email will reach us.

Virginia MyAccount Information


Welcome Virginia MyAccount
users!

Log in to PPL MyAccount


Within a self-directed program, there is information and documentation that you and providers need to supply or monitor as well as forms that need to be updated and maintained. In the past, a lot of this was provided over the phone or through physical paperwork. PPL previously offered the BetterOnline™ web portal so that you and your providers could monitor their information online. 

That was then, new advancements have been made after hearing your feedback!

The BetterOnline web portal has since replaced with a new online account access platform that offers greater flexibility, accessibility and account management options to help you simply and manage your information easily and quickly all at the click of a button.

To that end, we’ve created the PPL’s all new web portal, MyAccount!
