This Notice informs providers of provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (referred to as the "CARES Act").
The CARES Act provides a refundable tax credit for 2020 to eligible individuals. The Internal Revenue Service will provide payments in 2020 as an advance refund of credit to eligible individuals. These payments are called "Recovery Rebates".
The "CARES Act" also provides that certain individuals collecting unemployment benefits may be eligible to receive an additional $600 as "Pandemic Unemployment Compensation" per week for weeks of unemployment ending on or before July 31, 2020. The monthly equivalent of $2580 in Pandemic Unemployment Compensation will be disregarded when determining countable income for the purpose of Medicaid eligibility.
