REMINDER: Interim Financial Report – Facilities Must Complete Form by June 30th.
SCHEDULE A AND SCHEDULE B Must be Completed (Do NOT Omit Information)
Nursing facilities are required to file an Interim Financial Report by June 30th with EOHHS to account for the manner in which the MassHealth COVID-19 Supplemental Initial Payment for the Up to 50% Program was spent. This program will provide up to $130 million in supplemental funding distributed via four payments. EOHHS will consider the entire amount of the Initial Payment unspent if the facility fails to submit the interim report timely and it will recoup all funds.
IMPORTANT REMINDER ON COMPLETING SCHEDULE A/Interim Financial Form and SCHEDULE B/Supporting Documentation Log. Facilities must complete both Schedule A and Schedule B in the following manner:
- Schedule A/Interim Financial Form - Facilities should complete Items 1-4 on the worksheet. For Item 1/Increased Wages, if a facility did not provide increases or bonuses to specific positions, it can leave those positions blank; and
- Schedule B/Supporting Documentation Log for certain items that are claimed on Schedule A (Temporary Nursing Services, Infection Control Measures such as PPE and Other Contract personnel). For Schedule B, NFs should report invoices totaling the lower of: (1) the amount claimed on schedule A, sections, 2, 3, and 4, or (2) the amount of the supplemental payment received.
Please contact NFReporting@umassmed.edu if you have further questions in regard to filing the Interim Financial Report.
