TO: All Child Care Manual Holders
FROM: Douglas E. Lumpkin, Director
SUBJECT: Changes in Child Care Provider Reimbursement Rates

This letter transmits emergency amendments to rule 5101:2-16-41 of the Administrative Code. These changes are necessary in order to correct several erroneous rates issued in Child Care Manual Transmittal Letter No. 101, and to allow Step Up To Quality star rated programs to receive additional reimbursement amounts. These amendments are effective August 12, 2009.

Rule 5101:2-16-41 has been amended to revise the provider reimbursement table in the appendix and to add language requiring additional reimbursement amounts to programs that have achieved two and three star Step Up To Quality ratings.

CDJFS shall amend provider contracts no later than August 23, 2009, using the amended maximum reimbursement rates as shown in the appendix to rule 5101:2-16-41 and the new additional reimbursement amounts for Step Up To Quality rated programs.

The JFS 01224 "Contract for Purchase of Publicly Funded Child Care Services" has been revised to add the SUTQ amounts and to clarify insurance requirements for type A and type B providers.

The electronic version of the Child Care Manual is located at: The manual contains all rules, forms, transmittal letters and procedure letters that the department has issued to county departments of Job and Family Services (CDJFS) and to child care providers.
