Distribution Plan for the COVID-19 temporary 8.4% rate increase for Grattan HealthCare, Inc.

This plan will be posted until at least January 30, 2021

In response to COVID-19, the Minnesota Legislature approved a temporary rate increase of 8.4% to begin tentatively on Dec. 1, 2020 and will be in effect until approximately Feb. 7, 2021. The legislation required that employers pass on at least 80% of the 8.4% increase to Personal Care Attendants (PCAs) in wages and benefits, and the corresponding increase in the employer’s share of FICA taxes, Medicare taxes, state and federal unemployment taxes, and workers compensation premiums.

Grattan HealthCare will be putting 80% of this increase toward wages, benefits and payroll taxes for PCAs. This will be paid out to PCAs on the payroll for the last day of the increase. The addition of these funds will not change the participants original approved amount of units.
This rate increase does not apply to Qualified Professionals or office staff.

The additional 20% was used by the agency to cover the cost for activities and items necessary to support compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on sanitation and personal protective equipment.

If any PCA does not feel that they received the compensation related increase as required, you should contact Brion Fornshell at 218-820-1326 ext. 5 or brion@grattanhealthcareadmin.com. You may also contact the Department of Human Services:
