Generally, these individuals remain residents of NY per the guidelines in SI 01410.030. However, NY does not certify or exercise control over out-of-state facilities. Therefore,
the NY OSS C, D, or E are not appropriate for NY residents physically located in other
states. The non-congregate care NY OSS corresponding as closely as possible to the
individual's actual living arrangement is appropriate. In the majority of cases, this
would be an OSS A for adults (based on flat fee) and OSS B for children (see SI 01410.030D.1).
Requests for payment of a NY congregate care rate by individuals residing in out-of-state
facilities should be brought to the attention of the Center for Programs Support.
