Hey y’all, this is V.1.1 CARES Application - Medicaid.pdf (1.7 MB) our guidance document on how to complete an application for CARES Act Provider Relief Funds for Medicaid-accepting practices who didn’t get any Medicare money.
Thanks to all the SOAPMites for their careful review: Bob Stephens, Sue Kressly, @cdiasio, and @chip. A special thanks to Stephanie Glier of the AAP’s Federal Affairs division. She provided thoughtful review and analysis, and most importantly is clarifying some of the vaguer language directly with HHS.
I will be hitting some of the highlights of the document tomorrow on Episode #12 of the Chip and Paulie Show . We anticipate that this document will contain most of the common questions people are asking. We’re posting it now so that you can take some time to review it before the webinar.
While this document has been checked for accuracy and represents our best guidance as of 6/17/20, rules can change. I will do my utmost to keep it updated as new information comes out, and I’ll repost new versions here. ALL THE ERRORS ARE MINE, MINE, MINE.
As a courtesy, we have included OP- and PCC-specific guidance on reporting from those systems. I would be delighted to add similar sections on guidance for eCW, Athena, etc.; please send them to me at email@example.com. Please keep instructions (including screenshots) under a page in length; alternatively we can outlink to your external document with instructions.
