2002 Rates for Residential Care Centers


The 2002 Residential Care Centers (RCC's) were originally published in Info Memo 2002-01 (January 31, 2002). Since that time, there have been some adjusted rates which are shown on the attached.

Current and future referrals to residential care centers should reflect the amount to be paid as listed in this communication. Any rates which were paid prior to this date will be acceptable for audit purposes if they were listed in Info Memo 2002-01. Where the attached list does not show a rate, the RCC should follow the instructions in the October 1, 2001 William Fiss memo. County Departments are advised of possible audit exception for purchasing services from residential care centers without established rates for 2002.

Residential Care Centers having any questions on their published rate or how to change their rate should contact Thomas Smith at (608) 266-2558.
