Lincoln – The deadline for qualified Medicaid and CHIP providers to apply for the Medicaid & CHIP Provider Relief Fund distribution has been extended. The Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) set a new deadline of August 3, 2020. The Nebraska Medicaid program encourages providers to apply.
To ensure that all qualifying providers are aware of the opportunity, as well as the new application deadline, Medicaid is reaching out to medical, behavioral, dental, and long-term services and supports (LTSS) providers to remind them that they can begin the application process at this time.
To support these efforts, included below some resources that the Health Resources and Services (HRSA) has released on the Provider Relief Fund:
