Respite Voucher Learning Collaborative Meeting

May 16, 2018

The Nuts and Bolts of Voucher Respite

In implementing a respite voucher program, States use a variety of delivery and reimbursement systems, target different populations, and define provider eligibility differently. This call will provide an opportunity for network members to discuss different approaches to respite voucher program implementation. Linda Porter from Lifespan Respite Washington and Elle Billman from the Colorado Respite Care Program initiated the idea for the call and facilitated a peer-led informal café call to allow grantees and partners to share successes, challenges, implementation strategies, and tools/forms used. During this call, the participants decided to launch a Respite Voucher Learning Collaborative that would meet regularly to discuss implementation issues and challenges.
