DOH Posts Wage Parity LS300 Form

The Department of Labor (DOL) has issued a revised LS300 Annual Compliance Statement of Wage Parity, Hours, and Expenses form. The form is required to be provided by Licensed Home Care Services Agencies (LHCSAs) and Fiscal Intermediaries to their contracting Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHAs), Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) Plans, and Long Term Home Health Care Programs (LTHHCPs) each calendar year. Only providers in the New York City, Suffolk, Nassau, and Westchester regions are subject to the wage parity requirement and reporting.

The LS300 form is due Dec. 1, 2022. Starting in 2023, it will be due on or before June 1st of each year for the prior calendar year.

Guidance for the requirement is available here. LeadingAge NY will be consulting with its partner accounting firm to assess the appropriateness of the form.

The LS300 form differs from the LS301 Independent Auditor’s Statement Verifying Employer’s Wage Parity, Hours, and Expenses form, which is currently being revised and not due until Oct. 1, 2023. It also differs from the Annual Wage Parity Certification form that is submitted by Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), CHHAs, LTHHCPs, LHCSAs, and FIs via the eMedNY portal; that form is due Oct. 31, 2022.

General questions related to wage parity requirements can be sent to hcworkerparity@health.ny.gov.
