Overview and Access Guide for Seeking Provider Relief Funding from HHS Allocation to Medicaid Providers

On June 9, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the allocation of $15 billion in funding to be distributed to Medicaid/CHIP providers who did not receive a payment from the $50 billion General Distribution. The below table summarizes the funding allocations, eligibility requirements, and the process to apply. Medicaid/CHIP providers must apply no later than August 3, 2020 (this deadline was formerly July 20, which was extended on July 17). We encourage all Medicaid providers that may be eligible to begin the application process as soon as possible by submitting their Tax Identification Number (TIN) through the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund Attestation Portal.
