How Does the Respite Care Program Work?
For an eligible child or adult, a family may receive authorization to receive
up to $550.00 of Respite Care services; with $200.00 for each additional eligible
child or adult, up to a maximum of $950.00 per family, per year (June 1-May 31).
The family selects a provider and uses the Request For Payment form to purchase
Respite Care Services. The provider receives reimbursement by submitting the
Request For Payment form to the Department of Human Services Respite Care Program.
