Relative Pay Cut

April 10, 2012 ToddW No Comments »


Once again on 4/5/12 the Senate Health and Human Services omnibus bill was heard in the Senate Finance Committee for the second time, and an amendment was successfully added to the bill that delays the 20% PCA relative wage cut until July 1, 2013. Please see the section on the Senate Health and Human Services Omnibus bill (below) for the status of this bill.

It is my understanding that this amendment will restore the cut that took effect on Friday, March 23, 2012 meaning any hours worked on 3/23/12 going forward will now be reimbursed at 100% for any PCA who is an immediate family member of their assigned client(s).

Here is the link to the actual bill. You’ll need to scroll down to the bill number 2093. If you click on the PCA Update link on the top it will take you to the summary. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you
