SPECIAL BULLETIN COVID-19 #126: New Deadline for Medicaid Providers Applying for Federal Relief Funds

Friday, August 28, 2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the deadline for Medicaid/CHIP providers to submit their financial data to apply for federal provider relief funds has been extended to Sept. 13, 2020. Providers that have not yet submitted their applications are encouraged to apply.

North Carolina providers that participate in Medicaid may be eligible to receive federal relief as a result of lost revenue or new expenses relating to the COVID-19 public health emergency. 

Eligible providers will receive at least 2% of reported annual gross revenue from patient care. North Carolina providers may qualify and are encouraged to apply if they participate in Medicaid or NC Health Choice. Providers who received payments from the Provider Relief Fund previously or had a change in ownership are now eligible to receive payments.
