Against a backdrop of the pandemic, special needs providers have faced numerous choices, including options for federal stimulus funding. Many organizations have access to more than one type of funding. New legislation brings additional funding opportunities on top of existing relief. This has created unique challenges for providers, since each funding source has its own rules on how it can be used. In addition, intellectual and developmental disabilities and behavioral health (IDD/BH) providers need to ensure the use of these funds doesn't lead to double dipping that could reduce their state or Medicaid funding.
In this webinar, we'll update providers on the latest changes to stimulus funding affecting IDD/BH providers. We'll also outline areas that special needs providers should focus on, including how to allocate funding, how to protect and maintain state funding, and how these practices can affect CFR reporting and reimbursement.
