In an effort to retain and stabilize the health care workforce in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Legislature authorized $1.3 billion in health care worker retention bonuses. As a result, many physicians working in qualifying facilities are eligible to receive retention payments of up to $1,000.
The California Medical Association (CMA) recently cohosted a webinar with the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to provide physicians and physician groups with an overview of the Hospital and Skilled Nursing Facility COVID-19 Worker Retention Payments. The free one-hour webinar is now available on-demand.
During the webinar, DHCS discusses who is eligible for the bonus payment and provides an overview of the registration and application processes.
