All residents of PCHs in Manitoba are required to pay a daily charge (collect monthly), which is set by Manitoba Health. The daily residential charge is determined by an assessment of the annual income of each resident and is re-evaluated by Manitoba Health annually in August.
To calculate the residential charges, please visit the Manitoba Health website.
Applicants admitted to hospital begin paying the residential charge once their application has been approved to the wait list. All individuals waiting placement in hospital must move to the first available appropriate PCH bed in or as close to their home community as possible.
Applicants waiting in the community for a PCH bed begin paying the residential charge on the day they are admitted to any PCH.
There are some charges over and above the residential fee that are the responsibility of the resident. Please click here.
