HHS Medicaid Providers and Private Pay Providers COVID-19 Phase 3 Relief Funding
Deadline for submission is November 6, 2020.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), announced $20 billion in new funding for providers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic. Under this Phase 3 General Distribution allocation, providers that have already received Provider Relief Fund payments are invited to apply for additional funding that considers financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the coronavirus. Previously ineligible providers, such as those who began practicing in 2020 will also be invited to apply, and an expanded group of behavioral health providers confronting the emergence of increased mental health and substance use issues exacerbated by the pandemic will also be eligible for relief payments.  Providers can begin applying for funds on Monday, October 5, 2020.

***Administrator Certification Renewal Update***

As many of you know, notices for administrator certification renewals and proof of continuing education have been issued, with an October 1st due date.  Among the many other COVID 19 challenges has been continuing education opportunities and obtaining the continuing education requirements for administrator renewal. 

We had hoped that allowances would have been taken into consideration for administrators and the Association requested a relaxation in these requirements during this pandemic. DHSR has indicated that they have not received authority to extend the expiration deadline of administrators beyond 12/31/2020. However,  we have received an extension for renewal application submissions from the October 1 deadline to November 15th.
