HHS Announces More Relief Funding for Medicaid and CHIP Providers

On June 9, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced additional distributions from the Provider Relief Fund to eligible Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) providers.

HHS expects to distribute approximately $15 billion to eligible providers that participate in state Medicaid and CHIP programs and have not received a payment from the Provider Relief Fund General Allocation. The payment to individual providers will be at least two percent of their reported gross revenue from patient care. This calculation will be based on information submitted by providers, including information regarding the number of Medicaid patients they serve.
