Q: I have two children with disabilities whom I think could benefit for Medical Assistance-TEFRA. One is already on it and we’re thinking of getting other one on it. Do we have to pay two parental fees?
A: Great question! The parental fee is per household. Regardless of how many children on MA-TEFRA are in a household, there is one parental fee. Our Arc Guide to MA-TEFRA will help you better understand details of the program as it is quite complex. Read the Arc Guide at http://bit.ly/2MitkT4.
Another option is to contact the Parental Fees Unit at the Department of Human Services, a great resource around fees. Their number is 651.431.3806. If you have more questions, contact The Arc Minnesota at 833.450.1494 and ask to speak to a Healthcare Advocate.
