Moving from Net to Gross Payment of Adult Social Care Residential Care Fees

The Director will be asked to agree to the Councils proposal to move from providing residential care placements on a net basis whereby the Council will pay the assessed cost of care to the provider and the provider collects the client contribution, to gross provision meaning the Council will pay the full cost of care to the provider and take responsibility for collecting the client contribution.  This applies to all placement arrangements for the payment of residential and nursing care.  This change will have effect from 6th April, 2020.
