FSS Voucher Reimbursement
The Family Support Services respite reimbursement program reimburses families for respite provider costs. With the free time provided by a respite worker, caregivers have time to rest or attend to other needs. Families choose their own respite workers, pay them up front, and are then reimbursed after the service is provided and a voucher has been submitted. Individuals must be eligible for OPWDD services.
