Provider's Daily Co-Payment -
Parents are responsible for the daily co-payment fee. The parent’s co-payment plus the amount received through the daily transactions (swipes) equals the state maximum rate. Providers are not fully paid for their services unless they collect the parents’ co-payment. If a parent has failed to pay the daily co-payment as agreed upon, please submit or fax the Notice of Failure to Submit Fee Co-Payment to Office for Children immediately. The child care provider must show Office for Children proof of non-payment of daily co-pay.
