About Leslie Williams, RN
Medicaid waiver monies
Medical insurance verifying, payment date and amount with any balance paid by the parent prior to respite date.
Personal checks with 14 day window for deposit verification.
If a child becomes ill within 48 hours of their respite time, there are two options. 1) I will care for your sick child as long as we have safety measures in place for their return home or hospitalization. This type of care would only be utilized when parents have made plans that cannot be easily cancelled. Parents would need to provide written instructions for emergency care, should the parent be unable to return home in a timely fashion.
Caring for a child with expected or unexpected infections such as strep, staph, ear or GI issues is well within my scope of treatment. Unfortunately for the child this may not be his/her expected respite visit.
As humanly possible I would institute comforting alternatives for a quick recovery.
If a child's respite day(s) are cancelled related to illness, a new date(s) will be positioned for them. There are no monetary refunds as compensation will be alternative days for respite. Rescheduling should occur within six months.
Cost for private pay: 240.00 per day
Respite care budgets through Medicaid give the parents full use of a yearly respite amount.
Medical insurance,that covers respite may not reimburse the full daily cost. Parents must gave me a letter from their insurance company with the expected date of issuance. Parent are responsible (on or before the day of respite) to remit balance to Leslie Willians at Safe and Sound.
