It's not clear from your question whether the case is in Montgomery County, but if it is, it's not likely the case would be pending three years later. Talk with a good lawyer about whether there was a delay in arrest or in bringing you to trial, and what rights and defenses may exist to improve your situation.
From a quick read of your facts it sounds like the officer may have had probable cause to request the blood test based on the odor of alcohol and failed field sobriety tests. Assuming you weren't drinking and had no controlled substances or other drugs in your blood you should be cleared by the blood test. Talk with a good lawyer now either way as there may be more relevant facts to discuss.
A first offense refusal of the blood test carries a one year suspension of your license. You can appeal and you may or may not be successful. In addition to that you will still have to defend against the DUI charges which can result in an additional one year suspension, jail, fines etc. Talk with a good Montgomery County DUI attorney about all of the facts of your case and ask whether the ARD program might be right for you.

Don't just blindly accept the year in jail. Make sure you have a good attorney review your case for defenses. For instance, if the stop was bad then the whole case might be dismissed. The problem for you will be that the better lawyers generally require payment up front - they will not accept payments. Good luck.
I have another case where Hatboro administered a breath test so I know that they use the Intoxilyzer 8000 device. It should say that on the printout that you got from the test, assuming they gave it to you in accordance with Pennsylvania regulations. This device was just successfully challenged in Dauphin County and we are collecting cases to raise this same challenge in Montgomery County. Please contact a qualified Montgomery County DUI lawyer familiar with the Schildt case and the experts...
You should fire the lawyer who settled your case without consulting you and hire a new drunk driving accident lawyer immediately. Try to seek someone who is also qualified to handle a legal malpractice claim. You have two years from the date of the settlement in which to bring the legal malpractice claim, so do not delay.
You need to call a Montgomery County Personal Injury Lawyer and have an in-depth consultation pertaining to all of the facts of your case. You may well have a very good personal injury claim that you should pursue sooner rather than later.
Forest is correct. It does not sound like you are eligible for ARD, but if you are that would change the answer. Suspensions pursuant to ARD do not result in suspension in the home state because there is no conviction.
