Medicaid/CHIP Provider Relief Fund Payment
HHS has announced it will distribute approximately $15 billion in COVID-19 disaster relief to Medicaid and CHIP providers that were excluded from prior distributions. HHS has launched a Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal that will allow Medicaid and CHIP providers to report their annual patient revenue. The portal can be found here: https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/cares-act-provider-relief-fund/for-providers/index.html
Payment to each eligible provider will be at least 2% of reported gross revenue from patient care. Dentists are eligible for this funding, but you must have billed Medicaid/CHIP for services between January 1, 2018 and May 31, 2020 and you must not have received payments from the Provider Relief Fund General Distribution.
