Health Care Worker Bonus Claims Due May 1st

The fifth and final vesting period of the Health Care Worker Bonus (HWB) program ended on March 31, 2024. Employers have from April 1st through May 1st to submit bonus claims for eligible workers employed from October 2023 through March 2024. Missed claims from prior periods may be submitted as well, while any overpayments must be returned to the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) using the dedicated bonus overpayment self-disclosure process.

The claiming portal is here, the bonus website is here, and the Questions and Answers (Q&A) document that serves as primary guidance for the program is here.
