On June 9, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), announced additional funding opportunities available to Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) providers and safety net hospitals. Until this announcement, almost none of the tens of billions of dollars in relief aid has been directed toward physicians who predominantly see Medicaid patients. The available funds include $15 billion from the Provider Relief Fund to eligible Medicaid and CHIP providers. The payment to each provider will be at least two 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. To be eligible for this funding, health care providers must not have received payments from the $50 billion Provider Relief Fund General Distribution. However, they must have directly billed Medi-Cal or Medi-Cal managed care plans for health care related services between January 1, 2018 and May 31, 2020.
