Update: Deadline Extended
Federal COVID-19 relief funding is available for Medicaid and CHIP providers. Federal HHS has launched a Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal that will allow eligible Medicaid and CHIP providers to report their annual patient revenue. This will be used as a factor in determining their Provider Relief Fund payment. The payment to each provider is expected to be at least 2 percent of reported gross revenue from patient care. Restrictions apply, and providers should carefully read the posted materials.

The application deadline has been further extended to offer providers additional opportunity to apply for funding. You must act by Friday, Aug. 28, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. ET to be considered for payment from this distribution. Read more about the extension here.

HHS has a set of provider instructions and application form available on their website.
