2003 Rates for Residential Care Centers


The Residential Care Centers (RCC's) listed in the attachment have established their 2003 rates for their services and have notified our Department of these rates as required by Section 46.037, Wis. Stats. We are pleased to share this information with you.

Current and future referrals to residential care centers should reflect the amount to be paid as listed in this communication. Where the attached list does not show a rate, the RCC should follow the instructions in the October 1, 2002 William Fiss memo. County Departments are advised of possible audit exception for purchasing services from residential care centers without established rates for 2003.

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