BACKGROUND - The Temporary Caregiver Insurance Program (TCI) was signed into law by Governor Chafee on July 11, 2013 and is effective as of January 5, 2014.

Program Description and Required Documents - The TCI Program providers up to 4 weeks of wage replacement benefits to workers who need to take time our of work to care for a seriously ill child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, parent-in-law or grandparent OR to bond with a newborn child, adopted child, or foster child. Bonding claims may be requested during the first 12 months of parenting only. Proof of parent-child relationship will be required.


  • Applicants will be responsible for obtaining the required medical documentation and any other supporting documentation requested by TDI from the care recipient's (seriously ill family member) qualified healthcare provider (QHP). This includes obtaining the care recipient's signature on any QHP required release of information forms. TDI will not be requesting this information directly from the QHP. TDI will provide the claimant with the required form and the claimant will be bringing the form to your office to complete and mail or fax back to TDI to process. All release of information forms will need to be obtained from your office directly from the patient.




  • TDI will be working closely with both the Dept. of Health and the Dept. of Labor and Training's Fraud Unit to prevent and detect any potential misuse of program funds. If you suspect and or would like to report fraud, please call (401) 462-8419.
