CQC - Fees 2018/2019 Consultation
Last year following consultation CQC completed the path to achieve full chargeable cost recovery, set over a two-year period for most providers in line with government requirement. The exception was for community social care providers (including home care providers) whose trajectory was set over four years.
CQC recognise the financial challenges that providers face, and CQC do not underestimate the impact of fees on providers. CQC proposals for 2018/19 will seek to make sure that the fees scheme continues to distribute fees in a proportionate way for all registered providers.
The feedback will be analysed from this consultation in January 2018, when CQC will prepare a response and a final fees scheme. CQC’s Board will recommend the scheme to the Secretary of State, whose consent is required in order for the scheme to come into effect. CQC expect to publish their response and our final fees scheme in March 2018, for implementation on 1 April 2018.
