What is a copayment?

A copayment is the portion of your provider’s actual charge that is over and above the amount reimbursed by the Child Care Subsidy program and your sliding fee. It is your household’s responsibility to negotiate this charge with your child care provider. The copayment and sliding fee are two separate charges in addition to the State’s reimbursement rate.

 NOTE: A provider cannot charge a co-payment for Protective Services Child Care
