Application Schedule

AC submissions are due 90 days prior to the end of the certification period. The EHBs system will send email reminders to your LALs contacts identified in the system 150 days prior to the end of the certification period to inform them that the application is accessible in EHBs. Once notified that the submission is available, you will have 60 days to complete and submit all components in EHBs. All LALs are required to submit an AC submission within the certification period, by the established deadline. Reference the list of FY 2022 AC deadlines.

How to Apply

Existing LALs will receive an email notification from the EHBs when the AC is available for input and submission. If you do not receive an expected email regarding AC access 150 calendar days prior to the end of your current LAL certification period, please contact a Health Center Engagement (HCE) Program Analyst via the BPHC Contact Form for additional guidance. Failure to submit a timely and complete LAL AC may result in termination of the LAL designation and all corresponding benefits.
