Q: Who is responsible for payment for VRI?
The responsibility for payment would be with the hiring entity. VRI is normally billed on a per minute rate for the time used of service. Pre-paid packages are being offered to many entities and can be available at a discounted rate based on usage. Comparing VRI with Community Interpreting, entities will see the cost savings as there are no last minute charges, cancellation policies, travel fees or 2 hour minimum on assignments.
