  • The intent of PREP is to provide Re-employment Services, not to deny benefits.

  • Try to re-set orientation appointment, instead of exempting. If you schedule an individual for services, please try to provide those services and code the plan as having completed the services to receive credit.

  • Try not to exempt individuals if at all possible because USDOL has requested that no more that 30% of those scheduled be exempted from services.
