90 Day Operating Expense
 

This suggestion is an overreach by DBHDS when Sponsored Residential Residences are already strained and overburdened by regs. such as: "The 21 Days Out of service" imposed on individual's who the majority of do not have anyone to provide care so Providers are then working without pay!!!!!

Remove the statement from the last paragraph that states “In order to meet regulatory requirements, these resources must be kept in separate accounts from which personal daily operating expenses are withdrawn or from which payments received for residents living in the home are deposited.” This is required of any other service line and this is not outlined anywhere in regulations for sponsored services. This puts an additional burden on the sponsor.

Sincerely,

Michelle Gebetsberger
