Derived by taking Manitoba Health's expenditures for Personal Care Homes (PCH) and dividing that amount by the total number of PCH day, as obtained from the PCH file. Subtract an average residential charge of 35.00 dollars (the average amount paid by PCH residents), resulting in an average net per diem.
