AHCA Update: New AHCA/THCA Member Tools
AHCA/NCAL Grant & Loan Management Resource Guide
To aid members with managing the array of federal grants and loans, AHCA/NCAL has developed a basic primer (login required) for organizing oversight and day-to-day management of these emergency resources. The guidance includes federal cost reporting guidelines as well as recommended financial management approaches for members. This document is the Association’s first version; updates will be developed as the federal government and states release new or updated guidance.
COVID-19 Related Loss and Cost Calculator Also, available exclusively to AHCA/NCAL members is a COVID-Related Loss and Cost Calculator (login required). The purpose of this excel workbook is to offer a basic tool for members to assess allowable costs already reimbursed by pre-COVID payers, such as Medicare and Medicaid, and compare such reimbursement to shortfalls where grants and loans fill funding gaps. This tool will be particularly useful with reporting on and documenting use of the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund grants. To download the calculator (an Excel workbook), log into the AHCA/NCAL website and go here, or the Finance & Reimbursement section of the AHCA/NCAL COVID-19 webpage.
