The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published a consultation about the fees it proposes to charge care providers in 2015/16.

This year’s consultation, which runs until noon on 9th January, includes proposals to increase annual fees for all registered providers except for the dental sector and amend the fee scheme for independent healthcare providers whose fees increased due only to structural changes made in the 2013/14 fees scheme.

The regulator says that, with these increases included, health and care providers will still typically pay 1% or less of their income in fees to CQC. The impact of the proposed fee increase on a typical care home a would be £238.

CQC says the proposals in the consultation were developed with CQC’s Fees Advisory Panel, which includes representatives from the providers it regulates.
