Federal CARES Act Funding Information for HCBS

Federal CARES Act Funding Information for HCBS

Last Friday DSHS released a statement notifying providers that OFM has authorized funding from the CARES Act to help long term care providers offset COVID 19 costs. The funding will be used to provide temporary rate increases for Medicaid contracted assisted living providers and retainer payments for adult day providers. Although the amount has not been finalized, these funds will be available retroactively back to July 1. You can find the email with more information here.  This is replacing the $9.31 add-on provided through the enhanced FMAP.
