Provider Relief Fund: Medicaid & CHIP Provider Distribution
On June 9, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the distribution of approximately $15 billion from the Provider Relief Fund to eligible providers that participate in state Medicaid programs and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and have not received a payment from the Provider Relief Fund General Distribution.
The payment to each provider will be approximately 2 percent of reported gross revenue from patient care; the final amount each provider receives will be determined after the data is submitted.
Funds will be distributed to eligible providers who apply through the Provider Relief Fund portal. The portal will be open until July 20, 2020. All eligible Medicaid/CHIP providers are encouraged to apply.
