We’re pleased to offer reimbursement to organizations helping income-qualified customers gain assistance through the CARE or FERA program. If your organization dedicates resources to enrolling individuals and families in these programs, you could be entitled to a capitation fee to offset your expenses, ranging from $1 to a maximum of up to $20.
Under the Capitation Fee Project, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has authorized SCE to pay a capitation fee to participating organizations for each new customer they help to enroll in the CARE or FERA Program. This project is intended to encourage community-based organizations to partner with SCE to assist their hardest-to-reach customer populations with enrollment in the CARE or FERA Program.
The capitation fee reimburses entities for the incremental work associated with assisting customers in completing a CARE/FERA Program Application. Starting January 1, 2013, a fee of up to $20 has been authorized by the CPUC. . The capitation fee is paid only for customers actually enrolled in the CARE or FERA Program as a result of an agency’s assistance; Capitation fees are not paid for:
- Any efforts that do not result in a customer being enrolled in the CARE or FERA Program.
- Applications that are rejected as incomplete, ineligible, illegible, or other reasons.
- Applications received for customers already participating in the CARE or FERA Program.
To participate in the CARE Capitation Fee program, email us at email@example.com.
