Do you or a family member live in a staffed residence or with a Home Provider? Are you up to date on 2020 rates? Your residential fees change each year in January with Cost of Living (COLA) increases. It is important that individuals and families discuss this with their Service Coordinator ASAP, if they haven't already.

All people receiving Medicaid funded residential supports are required to pay the monthly residential fee set by the Division of Developmental Services for the level of residential support that they receive. The Adult Service Coordinator working with the individual is responsible to explain Residential Fees to the individual, their guardian and/or the representative payee. The Benefit Coordinator is also available to explain Residential Fees, if necessary.
