§ 3041.104. Parent or caretaker co-payment requirements.
(a) Except as provided in subsection (b), a parent or caretaker whose child is authorized for subsidy is required to pay a co-payment and an equivalent advance co-payment to the provider prior to enrollment in the subsidized child care program. Only the co-payment is due thereafter.
(b) A parent or caretaker who transfers from TANF shall pay a co-payment and an equivalent advance co-payment to the provider. The advance co-payment shall be paid by the time of the first redetermination.
(c) If the co-payment is decreased as the result of a redetermination or partial redetermination, the parent or caretaker will begin paying the reduced co-payment on the first day of the service week following the date of the redetermination or partial redetermination.
(d) If the co-payment is decreased as the result of a redetermination or partial redetermination, the provider will refund to the parent or caretaker the difference between the current advance co-payment and the decreased co-payment on the first day of the service week following the redetermination or partial redetermination.
(e) If the co-payment is increased as the result of a redetermination or partial redetermination, the parent or caretaker shall begin paying the increased co-payment on the first service day of the week following the notification specified in § 3041.161(a) (relating to general notification requirements) advising the parent or caretaker of the co-payment increase. The parent or caretaker shall also pay an increased advance co-payment, which is the difference between the current and the increased co-payment.
(f) The co-payment is due on the first day of the service week and each week thereafter, regardless of the day the parent or caretaker enrolls the child.
(g) The advance co-payment is refunded upon termination of subsidy if the parent or caretaker has met applicable requirements in this chapter.
