UPDATE: ARPA Workforce Stabilization Payment Initiative

June 1, 2023

Dear Provider: 

Partners Health Plan (PHP) wants to provide you with an update regarding the ARPA Workforce Stabilization Payment Initiative. 
OPWDD received federal approval for the second installment of PHP pass-through ARPA payments. OPWDD is working to effectuate this payment by June 30, 2023. PHP will disburse the funds immediately upon receipt from OPWDD. 
Therefore, if PHP receives the pass-through proceeds on or about June 30, 2023, disbursements will be received by providers in early July. Consistent with the first ARPA Workforce Stabilization distribution in November 2022, the payments will be made in the form of a check. This installment will include funds associated with the following: 
  • Retention Payment (including any payments for those now attesting) Vaccination Incentive (corrected surveys) 
  • Longevity Payment (for those who were missing from the initial November installment as well as those now attesting) 
  • COVID-19 Service (corrected surveys) 
Once we have definitive timing, we will publish a communication with an update. 
If you have any questions, please contact Provider Relations by opening a ticket here.
