Caring Times, November 2013

 

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has publisheds a consultation about the fees that it proposes to charge registered providers in 2014/15.

This year’s consultation includes proposals to:

  • Increase fees for all providers by 2.5%.
  • Change the bandings for residential care home providers to reduce the ’cliff edge’ effect of the current model (this is where a small change to the size of the service can take a provider into a higher fee band).
  • Introduce a measure to differentiate single location dental providers by the size of their practice, so we can more equitably charge fees to these providers from April 2014.

 

  • Make a minor technical change to a definition in the fees scheme in relation to residential substance misuse and specialist college services to make its application clearer.
