COVID-19 Rate Extension Communication 09.02.2022

Dear CILA Providers,

This communication is a follow up to the Division communications on December 13, 2021, and June 6, 2022. The Division is extending the 7% COVID premium increase through December 31, 2022.

We are hopeful this continued funding increase will help financially support residential CILA providers to further retain and attract staff as well as provide additional funding for vaccinations, testing, and other needs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

The Division thanks you for all you have done and continue to do.
