Private Pay is an Option!
Through MRCI-CDS Private Pay option families and individuals can pay for staffing without the worry and hassle of handling payroll taxes and other IRS obligations of having staff. By hiring, managing and supervising the workers individuals have the utmost authority in directing their own care. Having control is one of the number one concerns of people who are aging or have disabilities. Like other self-directed models, Private Pay gives the person that control.
MRCI-CDS is the employer of record, handles background checks, issues payroll checks, and handles tax obligations like sending out W-2s. The fee for Private Pay also covers the cost of worker’s compensation and unemployment.
By using this Private Pay option and paying for care with a fiscal management service, payment to any care provider will stand up to a Medicaid look back should the client spend their own money and become eligible for Medical Assistance. Also by using a fiscal management service you will comply with all of the IRS guidelines for reporting wages and paying taxes. Lastly, a fiscal management service will accurately report the dollars that are spent on care to family members reducing the financial exploitation or accusations that could potentially occur.
