This report presents DSHS service costs for individuals in Residential Habilitation Centers (RHCs) compared to those who have similar characteristics and assessed service needs who reside in Community Residential or Other Community-Based settings. Clients in RHCs were statistically matched to clients in community settings based on age and a comprehensive set of health, behavior and medical risk factors. We found that the average monthly service costs of clients in RHCs, even when adjusted for comparability, were almost twice the amount of those in Community Residential settings and more than three times that of clients residing in Other Community-Based settings.
