FERA & CARE Capitation Fee Program

Capitation Fee Program

We’re pleased to offer reimbursement to organizations helping income-qualified customers gain assistance through the FERA or CARE 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.

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 FERA or CARE 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 FERA or CARE Program.

The capitation fee reimburses entities for the incremental work associated with assisting customers in completing a FERA/CARE Program Application. A fee of $30 has been authorized by the CPUC. The capitation fee is paid only for customers actually enrolled in the FERA or CARE Program as a result of an agency’s assistance; Capitation fees are not paid for:

  1. Any efforts that do not result in a customer being enrolled in the FERA or CARE Program.
  2. Applications that are rejected as incomplete, ineligible, illegible, or for other reasons.
  3. Applications received for customers already participating in the FERA or CARE Program.
