ODP Updates Retainer Payment Policy

ODP Announcement 20-095 provides a revision to Announcement 20-074 published on June 17, 2020 related to CPS retainer payments. For the period of July 1 through September 30, 2020, ID/A Waiver funds, under authority of the approved Appendix K waiver amendment, will be used to make retainer payments to CPS providers.

After evaluation of the re-opening status for facility-based CPS services, ODP has determined that all facilities that have submitted the Provider Attestation Form as per instructions in ODP Announcement 20-085 will receive a July retainer calculated at 50% of average monthly billing for 7/1/19–2/29/2020.

There is no change to the calculations described in Announcement 20-074 for retainer payments for August and September. July retainer payments are anticipated to be dispersed in the third (3rd) week of August.

To be eligible for retainer payments in July, August and September, providers are reminded they must complete and submit the Provider Attestation Form for Retainer Payments.

The Appendix K amendments approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on March 18, 2020 and July 23, 2020, require ODP to conduct an analysis of any retainer payments made for the period of July 1 through September 30, 2020, and reconcile the payments if needed to ensure that no duplicate payments have been made for services rendered. Additional details will be provided by ODP on the payment dates and reconciliation process.
