Deadline Extended: Medicaid Application for Provider Relief Fund

Today, HHS extended the application deadline for the Medicaid tranche of the COVID Provider Relief Fund to Monday, August 3, 2020. The payment to each provider will be approximately 2 percent of reported gross revenue from patient care, and the final amount each provider receives will be determined after the data is submitted. 

Unlike previous funding tranches, this is not a first-come, first-serve process. These funds are available to providers who have not received payment from the General Distribution to Medicare providers, and have billed Medicaid or Medicaid managed care plans for health care-related services between January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2019. 

AHCA/NCAL has a tips sheet and step-by-step guide for providers on how to successfully navigate the Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal for non-SNF Medicaid providers. 

Instructions for the application form can be found here. For additional information, please see the Medicaid and CHIP Distribution FAQs

The application portal, as well as an application tutorial recording and Medicaid Provider Fund fact sheet can be found here. Please take time to ensure all of the data is gathered and accurate before submission. 

Please email COVID19@ahca.org for additional questions, or visit ahcancal.org/coronavirus for more information.
