2015 Rate For Live-In Personal Care Services

HMS has recently received information from the Connecticut Association for Healthcare at Home that the Department of Social Services (DSS) has been in ongoing consultation with the Department of Labor regarding its rate methodology for the live-in service. The methodology is as follows:

“There is an assumption that PCAs are able to sleep at least eight hours. The sleep is not required to be uninterrupted but must total eight hours. An individual’s pay will be based on a 16-hour day with no other deductions for time such as meal time or breaks. If a PCA will not be able to sleep at least eight hours, the Access Agencies will be advised that live-in is not an appropriate service.”
