The United States Department of Health and Human Services announced a new application portal for Medicaid providers that have not yet received funding to access the COVID-19 Provider Relief Funds. The NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) is encouraging all Medicaid-funded providers in New York State to apply for this funding.

HHS expects to distribute $15 billion to eligible Medicaid and CHIP providers. The payment to each provider will be at least 2 percent of reported gross revenue from patient care. The final amount each provider receives will be determined after the data is submitted, including information about the number of Medicaid patients providers serve.  Providers must submit their data by July 20, 2020.
