How are providers paid?
Traditional providers receive a monthly minimum room and board payment set by the state. A Difficult of Care (DOC) rating may be set based on the required level of care. The payment is usually a combination of the client’s pension, Social Security income, Social Security disability, and Group Residential Housing (GRH) funds. Residents who have the financial resources to pay can negotiate a fee with the provider.

Corporate providers must first respond to a request for a proposal and go through the county selection process. If selected, a representative of the corporation must meet with a county contract manager to negotiate a contract.
