7.13.24 UPDATE: ARPA Workforce Stabilization Payment Initiative
July 13, 2023
Partners Health Plan (PHP) wants to provide you with an update regarding the ARPA Workforce Stabilization Payment Initiative.
PHP was recently informed that OPWDD is working to effectuate the second installment of the pass-through ARPA payments by mid-August 2023. Therefore, if PHP receives the pass-through proceeds mid-August 2023, we will immediately then disburse the funds such that they should be received by providers in the latter half of that month. Consistent with the first ARPA Workforce Stabilization distribution in November 2022, the payments will be made in the form of a check.
Just as a reminder, this installment will include funds associated with the following elements:
- Retention Payment (including any payments for those now attesting)
- Vaccination Incentive (corrected surveys)
- Longevity Payment (for those who were missing from the initial November installment as well as those now attesting)
- COVID-19 Service (corrected surveys)
As soon as we receive an update as to when this funding is anticipated to occur, we will inform providers.
