ARPA Workforce Stabilization Payment Initiative Update

February 2, 2023

Dear Provider:

Partners Health Plan (PHP) wants to provide you with an update regarding the ARPA Workforce Stabilization Payment Initiative. PHP distributed the FIDA pass-thru portion of the cost-based Longevity payment and the survey-based COVID-19 Service payments in November 2022.

With respect to distribution timing for the Retention and second half of the survey-based balances and for any omissions or corrections related to the Longevity payment and the survey-based funds paid in November, to date we have not received guidance yet from the State. As always, we will immediately share any updates that are received from the State. 

For providers that either did not submit the requisite attestations to acquire Retention or Longevity cost-base funds or need to correct COVID-19 survey data, OPWDD recently published information about one-time vehicles to do so. PHP would encourage providers to contact OPWDD for more information if either of these scenarios might apply to them.  If you have any questions please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
