Recovery Payment

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has received approval from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to make one-time payments for workforce recovery efforts. Payments will be calculated at 6% of the fee schedule revenue received for services rendered between July 1, 2023, through December 31, 2023, for the waiver services listed in the announcement. Don’t miss this opportunity for additional funding for your organization!

The intent of these funds is to assist providers in covering costs related to staffing programs and services. Other than the restriction that payments may not be used to increase or supplement compensation for agency executive staff, there are no specific restrictions, timeframes, or reporting due for these funds other than completing the ODP Workforce Recovery Supplemental Payments survey. ODP has indicated that this revenue would be considered similar to any other service revenue and advises providers to keep a record of how funds were used in the event that they are reviewed as part of the normal claim review process.

As of the morning of May 6, 2024, ODP has received requests from 350 providers. If your MPI is on this file, this will serve as confirmation that your agency’s request has been received. ODP will release a similar file next week prior to the deadline. Late requests will not be accepted. Providers must request the subject payments no later than May 15, 2024. See ODP Announcement 24-041 for additional information.

For any questions, contact Carol Ferenz.
