Medicaid CHIP Provider Relief Fund

HHS expects to distribute $15 billion to eligible Medicaid/CHIP programs or Medicaid Managed Care plans. If you did not received payment from the $50 billion General Distribution and you have either directly billed your state Medicaid/CHIP programs or Medicaid Managed Care plans for healthcare-related services, you could be eligible.

$15 billion to eligible Medicaid/CHIP programs or Medicaid Managed Care plans.

Early on much of the aid that was released was distributed largely based on a provider’s revenue from Medicare and private insurance. 

This shortchanged providers with high shares of Medicaid and uninsured patients who are disproportionately low-income, the populations hardest hit by the pandemic. Just recently, HHS sought to correct the problem by targeting some funds to Medicaid and safety net providers.
