PARENT CO-PAY FEES

Table of Contents

 

Each family receiving ACC assistance is required to pay a portion of their child care costs. The weekly fee amount is based on a sliding income scale and adjusted according to the size of the family household. (Refer to policies on Determining Family Household Size and Income Eligibility Determination).

 

Refer to Child Care Provider Contract, Section C.5.c, for provider requirements with respect to collection of co-pay fees.

 

A parent whose co-pay fees go unpaid for more than 2 weeks may be terminated from ACC. Once terminated for failure to pay the co-pay fees, an ACC parent cannot return to ACC qualification without proof of payment or a repayment plan acceptable to the provider.

 

An ACC parent who returns to FF eligibility and then becomes TCC eligible will not qualify for TCC without proof of payment or a repayment plan acceptable to the original provider to whom they were delinquent.
