Financial Considerations

How much does it cost to live in a Personal Care Home? 
The resident's cost is based on income. There is a residential charge calculator at http://www.gov.mb.ca/health/pcs/calculator.html available through our website to assist you in calculating this cost.

This charge represents only a portion of the costs associated with the services provided. Manitoba Health provides the balance of the monies required as part of the Personal Care Home insured program.

Personal Care Home Services Residential Charges in Manitoba

How do I apply for a reduced charge?
The initial amount assessed for every client is the maximum charge from August 1, each year to July 31, each year. You can apply to request a reduction. There are two ways to do this: The staff at your facility can give you the correct form(s) and help you to submit your request for a reduced charge. 

What if I feel I am unable to pay my assessed charge?
If your assessed charge is over the minimum daily amount and you are unable to pay due to extenuating circumstances, you may ask for a review within 30 days of the effective date. Information about the review process and Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living policies that may reduce the residential charge are available from staff at your facility. They will help you complete the required forms and will submit them to Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living on your behalf. Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living will review your request and notify the facility of its decision.

If you do not agree with this decision, you have the option to appeal through the Manitoba Health Appeal Board. This must occur within 30 days of being notified of the results of a review. The staff at your facility will assist you with this process.
