NYSDOH HWB Program Issues Guidance for Educational Employers

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Healthcare Worker Bonus (HWB) Program has updated the Frequently Asked Questions page on the NYSDOH Web site.  Qualified employers are encouraged to routinely review these resources for the latest information.  Updated guidance for Education Sector Employers has been published and includes guidance on applicable titles, claiming, registration, and additional information specific to the education sector.  NYSDOH is committed to updating the information it has provided as new questions come in and are answered.  To this end, NYSDOH has established an e-mail address (NYSWorkersBonus@health.ny.gov) dedicated to the HWB program.  Direct your inquiry to this inbox to make sure your questions are received and processed.  The Department has also established the HWB Call Center dedicated to answering questions about the online claims portal and assisting qualified employers with submitting their claims.  The HWB Call Center can be reached at 1 (866) 682-0077.
