From late November, the DESE, will begin to issue a small number of infringements (fines) to providers who have not reported their fee information.
Infringements help providers avoid more severe penalties. They allow a provider to pay a small fine rather than go to court, where they may get a much larger penalty.
Reporting fee information is one of the requirements under Family Assistance Law
When reporting your fees you must report:
- current hourly or session fees before CCS, discounts or reductions
- any changes to fees (within 14 days of the change).
