Confused by the Medicaid Relief Fund? Join Parker Poe Partner Matt Wolfe for Guidance
Last week, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) announced that it expects to distribute approximately $15 billion from the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund (“Relief Fund”) to eligible Medicaid and CHIP providers that have not already received a payment from the $50 billion in General Distributions from the Relief Fund. The Relief Fund was established by the CARES Act and supplemented by the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act. To be eligible for distributions, providers need to submit an application by the end of July.
The Home Care Association of America has received a slew of questions from members on the Medicaid and CHIP Relief Fund distributions. To address our members’ questions, we have arranged for Matt Wolfe, an attorney and partner with the law firm of Parker Poe, to present two webinars on these Relief Fund distributions. The first webinar, "What You Need to Know About Using the CARES Medicaid Relief Fund," will be held June 26, at 2 pm EDT, and will focus on eligibility, the application process, usage of the funds, and reporting obligations. The second webinar, "The CARES Relief Fund in Practice: What we Know Now," will be held July 14, at 2 pm EDT, and will provide an update on the administration of the Relief Fund Medicaid distributions based upon anticipated clarification from HHS in the coming weeks.
