The CARES Act created a Provider Relief Fund to distribute federal funds to providers in response to COVID-19. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expects to distribute $15 billion to eligible Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) providers.
All Ohio providers are eligible to apply for relief funds through the provider relief portal. This portal allows providers to attest to relief fund payments made for healthcare-related expenses or lost revenue attributable to COVID-19.
Before applying through the provider relief portal, The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities strongly encourages applicants to read the Medicaid Provider Distribution Instructions and download and complete the Medicaid Provider Distribution Application Form.
