News & Announcements
SPECIAL NEWS: One-Time COVID-19 Supplemental Support Payment Information
The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) will provide Consumer-Directed (CD) Attendants who worked anytime between July 1, 2021 and September 30, 2021 with a Covid-19 supplemental support payment of $1,000. This one-time, pre-tax payment is subject to all applicable taxes and withholdings, including garnishments.
In order to be eligible for the supplemental payment, the attendant must have:
- Worked during this time period; and
- Turned in the time worked and received payment
To qualify for the one-time payment, eligible attendant work hours must be submitted, approved and paid no later than December 31, 2021. Time submitted after the deadline will not qualify the attendant for the supplemental payment, even if they worked during the eligible timeframe.
A Virginia Medicaid bulletin regarding the one-time supplemental support payment was issued November 1, 2021. DMAS anticipates payments will be made no later than March 2022. Eligible attendants will receive their payment from one of three Fiscal/ Employment Agents: Consumer Direct Care Network, Public Partnerships, LLC, or ACES$ Financial Management Service.
For more information and answers to your common questions, check out this list of Frequently Asked Questions on the special, one-time support payment.
As more details become available, information will be posted on the DMAS website at: https://www.dmas.virginia.gov/#/covid.
