DHW encourages Idaho Medicaid providers to apply for funding before Dec. 18 deadline

DHW Communications

Idaho Medicaid providers may be eligible for funding from the Medicaid Provider CFAC  Stabilization Funding Opportunity, but the deadline is fast approaching. The one-page application is due by 5 p.m. Dec. 18.

This is an opportunity for providers who are enrolled with Idaho Medicaid to apply for part of the federal funds Idaho received to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the second round of the funding opportunity and is targeted at Medicaid providers who receive 20% or more of their revenue from Idaho Medicaid. 

“A few providers have emailed after receiving their checks, letting us know the funding helps. One provider called it an ‘unexpected blessing.’ We hope to see more applications for more opportunities to provide some relief,” said Matt Wimmer, division administrator for Medicaid, in the Department of Health and Welfare (DHW). “The application, in most cases, will let providers know immediately if they are eligible. All Medicaid providers, but especially the smaller ones, can really benefit from this. But they have to apply.”

Idaho Medicaid providers who meet the following qualifications should apply before Dec. 18. They must be:

  • In-state providers
  • Actively enrolled with Idaho Medicaid
  • In good standing, meaning no current provider actions, sanctions, or debts owed
  • In good standing with the state of Idaho, meaning applicants do not owe any back taxes
  • In good standing with the local, state, and federal government, meaning applicant is not suspended or debarred from receiving federal funds
  • Have Medicaid revenue greater than or equal to 20% of total annual revenues for calendar year 2019
