Fit-testing Reimbursement for Nursing Facilities

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is offering a reimbursement opportunity for licensed nursing facilities to support the development and/or maintenance of their fit testing programs.

Each licensed nursing facility in Colorado is eligible for a one-time reimbursement up to $300 through December 31, 2023.

At this time, the funding is only allocated for nursing facilities. CDPHE is exploring alternative funding sources to offer similar financial support to other facilities including assisted living residences, group homes, and intermediate care facilities.

Nursing facility administrators will receive an email with additional information and instructions detailing how to apply for reimbursement.
