Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Behavioral Health Workforce Gap Payment FAQ’s

Resource Account for remaining questions listed below

Please find attached OMHSAS’s FAQ’s about the Home & Community Based Services (HCBS) workforce support payments. Any remaining questions may be sent to the RA Account.

Please note that after receiving anticipated payment amounts on the attestation forms that were sent to providers at the locations of qualifying services , some providers alerted us to apparent irregularities in the payment amounts. OMHSAS is re-pulling our data and re-running our formulas to ensure that payments are based on proper calculations and a balanced distribution of funds .

Revised attestation forms will be sent to any providers who may have been impacted in their total allocation (positive or negative) with a new due date in early March.
