What is the Provider Relief Fund and how is PPL involved?
Public Partnerships | PPL applied and has recently secured federal COVID-19 relief funds to distribute to care/support workers of self-directing participants across all the programs we serve.
PPL secured these federal funds through the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund.
PPL is required to distribute these funds to healthcare providers and will be doing this in a series of staggered waves per different states to ensure all monies reach their intended recipients.
Am I eligible for a CARES Act Federal Relief Fund payment?
To be eligible to receive funds, a provider must:
1. Be employed as a provider by one or more self-directing participants for a PPL-serviced, self-direction program that has been invited to apply for funds.
2. Have submitted a timesheet and was paid through the Medicaid-administered, self-direction program by PPL for at least 4 days of service in any month between the period of March 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021 and where payments were processed by PPL. A day of service equals a minimum of one hour worked.
3. Digitally sign a legal attestation form, accessible via publicpartnerships.com during the defined period of invitation to apply.
How much will I receive and how are these amounts calculated?
In accordance with the guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, we will calculate your payment based on the number of days you worked during each and any month between March 2020 and January 2021.
Note: A day of work must contain a minimum of one hour worked.
Specifically, you will receive funds based on the number of days per month you indicated on your timesheet where you provided care/support for ANY self-directed participant between March 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021.
