2023 Basic Needs Allowance
For 2023, the Social Security Administration’s Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) to beneficiaries is an 8.7% increase. This increase means both an additional amount CFH providers may collect from resident’s for the monthly room and board payment, and also an increase in the Basic Needs Allowance that residents who receive public assistance to pay for their care retain from their total monthly income for their personal spending. The 2023 Basic Needs Allowance for the resident is at least $125 per month beginning in January 2023. Please ensure your admission agreements are updated accordingly if you wish to charge the maximum amount for room and board. A sample worksheet entitled “Basic Needs Allowance for CFH” can be found in the Guidance Documents library linked at the bottom of this page.
