Find NEW 2019 Market Rates Here

OCFS issued new market reimbursement rates.  To see the rates in your region, visit our website: voicecsea.org.  The rates will apply to services delivered May 1 and after. The 69th percentile formula uses data on parent fees reported by providers in the Market Rate Survey – reflecting what providers charge private pay parents.  County DSS agencies must inform you of the rate change and pay the new Market Rates if you did not sign a DSS provider contract.

Our message to legislators and the Governor made a difference.  This is the first year since 2014 that the state budget included funding for reimbursement rates.  Without $26 million in new funding for rates, we would have seen decreases. In most categories, rates increased or stayed the same. And the $26 million is not sufficient to pay us what we deserve and need to deliver quality programs to working families and the children in our care.

It will take all of us – providers and parents –  to make NY do better for our working families and children in next year’s budget.  To find out what you can do, e-mail voice@cseainc.org or call  877-483-2253.
