In The News: Medicaid/CHIP Provider Relief Fund

HHS is targeting funds to Medicaid and safety net providers. Application deadline July 20th.

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.
