2003 Assessment Manual

2003 Assessment Rate of 39% as published in the PA Bulletin.

New Assessment Payment Option Available


Mcare will accept assessment payments through an electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment process.  The EFT may be an ACH or wire transfer.  The EFT process provides primary insurers with alternative payment methods, in addition to paper checks.  We strongly recommend the use of EFTs when payments are made.  


To learn more about this new payment option and the minimum standards, please send an email to Mcare’s Fiscal Unit at ra-in-mcare-exec-web@pa.gov expressing your interest.  We will have an Mcare representative call you to explain the program.   We thank you in advance for considering Mcare's preferred method of payment.
