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.
