Home Care Worker Wage Parity

In accordance with Section 3614-c of the New York State Public Health Law, or the Home Care Worker Wage Parity Law, home care aides who perform Medicaid-reimbursed work within New York City and the counties of Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester may be paid both a base wage and a supplemental benefit to satisfy a minimum rate of total compensation.

The wage parity requirement can be satisfied entirely through a payment of wages or through a combination of both wages and supplemental benefits. For more information about Total Compensation and Overtime obligations, please visit the NYS Department of Health website.
