CCPU Providers Win Big in Historic Agreement with State—$ 100M Annually to Fund Health Care Benefits for Providers

Over the last year, CCPU members and supporters made thousands of phone calls to the Governor, joined dozens of caravans and press conferences, visited with state legislators, and demanded that
family child care providers receive benefits worthy of our essential worker status. On September 14, 2022, CCPU members across the state overwhelmingly voted YES on approving our Historic Healthcare Fund Reimbursement Program. CCPU’s health fund is designed to work with your health plan, it does not replace your health plan. This allows us to cover more providers with the available funding. The CCPU Health Care Fund will cover benefits for eligible providers for expenses, such as health plan out of pocket, including medical copays and deductibles, pharmacy copays and deductibles, and some health plan monthly premium expenses.
