Understanding Wage Parity
Helping employers navigate the law
With the passage of Public Health Law §3614-c and consequent amendment of the Home Care Worker Parity Law in New York, which now includes CDPAS and FIs, businesses like yours are looking at ways to meet the new requirements and help improve the lives of your employees.
The law establishes a minimum wage and supplemental benefit for home care aides who perform Medicaid reimbursed work for Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHAs), Long Term Home Healthcare programs (LTHHCPs) and Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) within New York City and the counties of Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester. MCOs include Mainstream plans, as well as all forms of managed long term care plans.
With this in mind, Leading Edge has designed the industry-leading platform for administration of these benefits.
