Long-Term Care Home co-payment rates

On July 1, 2016, the co-payment that residents pay for basic accommodation in long-term care (LTC) homes will increase from $58.35 to $58.99 per day, or $0.64 per day, consistent with recent increases to inflation. This will help cover the rising costs of meals and accommodation.
