Wage & Fringe Benefit Survey

On Tuesday, January 2, the survey was emailed directly to administrators, as well as human resource and business office managers whose email addresses we have on file. MHCA has modified the timeline for completing the annual Wage & Fringe Benefit survey to better align with our advocacy efforts at the Maine Legislature. The survey encompasses positions in nursing facilities, residential care, congregate housing, home health care and adult day care. 


  • Surveys should be completed for individual facilities; data should not be combined/averaged for multiple facilities within a corporation.

  • For the (490) Medical Director position ONLY, please indicate the monthly wage versus hourly.

​CHANGES to 2024 Survey:

  • Differentials Sheet: ADDED line to indicate any Covid Differentials for positions listed.
  • Agency Staffing Sheet: ADDED/MODIFIED questions. Question 5: CHANGED reporting period to January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023.
  • Recruitment & Retention Sheet: These questions were formerly at the end of the Fringe Benefit Sheet, but have been moved onto its own tab. ONE question from section moved to the Agency Staffing Sheet. Question 6: CHANGED reporting period to January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023. 

We strongly encourage all members to take the time to participate, as the higher the response rate, the stronger the validity of the data we gather. As always, individual responses will remain confidential. Members who participate in the survey will receive a complimentary electronic copy of the completed report, valued at $50.00 ($60.00 for a paper copy). 

Below is survey provided in two formats for completion:
