1225.045.00  CO-PAYMENTS TO THE PROVIDER

CD12-13, OEC12-02 January 30, 2012

When a provider's actual charges are more than the geographic maximum, the provider is permitted to collect this excess amount from the household in the form of a co-payment.  This charge is in addition to the family's sliding fee.

Inform the household to ask about co-payment policies when choosing providers.  It is the household's responsibility to negotiate this with the child care provider and to pay the agreed upon amount.

NOTE:  The provider is not permitted to charge a co-payment for Protective Services Child Care.
