Difficulty of Care Form (2014-7)

Payments for employees from Medicaid-sponsored programs are considered as non-taxable income. These payments are labeled as Difficulty of Care (DOC) payments. Claiming your payments as DOC payments is optional.

Filing exempt and declaring the payments as DOC payments are not the same.

  • Filing exempt: Your income will be reported as taxable with zero taxes withheld.
  • Filing DOC payments: Your income will not be reported as taxable and with zero taxes withheld.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible for DOC payments if you meet the following conditions:

  • Services must be received through one of two Medicaid-sponsored programs – CDCS and Licensed Personal Supports.
  • The Worker and Participant must live together full-time and engage in daily acts of living such as meals and holidays.

You are not eligible if you live with the Participant for only part of the week. For specific questions, consult your tax professional or review the IRS' article.

Do I still need to complete a W-4?

PICS does requires a W-4 for all Workers. Any earnings that are not DOC payments are taxable including:

  • Paid Time Off
  • Bonuses
  • Vacation

What will my W-2 look like?

If 100% of your earnings are considered DOC payments, you would receive a W-2 with a zero in:

  • Box 1: Wages, tips, other compensation
  • Box 2: Federal income tax withheld
  • Box 16: State wages, tips, etc.

How do I declare my payments as DOC?

Please consult with a tax professional. PICS cannot make this change for you. If you are eligible, our Payroll Department will send you a letter of eligibility along with your W-2 Form.
