House Bill 1043 and PPE Distributions
Message from the NCALA President
With HB 1043, the North Carolina General Assembly allocated $3.75 million for the purpose of providing Personal Protective Equipment to all licensed adult care homes (ACH) and family care homes (FCH).
Medical Supply Solutions (MSS) of Hickory, has been awarded the contract as the preferred vendor used to distribute the PPE to each licensed ACH and FCH.
Each administrator will be receiving an e-mail from Charles Antwi, Sales Representative, MSS, requesting community contact information. Please provide contact information and exact delivery location as the PPE distribution and receipt will have to be closely documented for the purpose of reporting to the NC State Auditor.
The total amount of funds set aside for each community solely for the purchase of PPE has been determined by the documented census on the last licensure survey (2019-2020). You can read the email you will recieve from MSS here.
Thank you for all that you do every day in service to your residents. Please do not hesitate to email me (or call: 919-909-5998) if you have further questions.
