14.9.6 Recoupment - Families

ISSUE DATE: 05/2009

When the family remains eligible for child care assistance, recoup the overpayment by reducing the amount of assistance paid at the following rates:

If the overpayment is due to agency or provider error, recoup the greater of ¼ of the family’s copayment or $10.

If the overpayment is due to the family’s 1st failure to report changes, recoup the greater of ½ of the family’s copayment or $10.

If the overpayment is due to the family’s failure to provide accurate information at application or redetermination,

OR

The family’s 2nd or subsequent failure to report changes, recoup the greater of ½ of the family’s copayment or $50.

When the overpayment is due to wrongfully obtaining public assistance as established by court conviction, court-ordered stay of conviction with probationary or other terms, a disqualification agreement, a pretrial diversion, or an administrative disqualification hearing or waiver, recoup the greater of the family’s copayment, 10% of the overpayment or $100.

The overpayments must be calculated and collected on a service period basis. The family is responsible for the cost of care that is related to the reduction of the payment.

If an ineligible family later reapplies for child care assistance and is determined eligible, begin recouping the overpayment following the above rates, unless a different repayment schedule has been specified in a court order.
