PDF Version

TO:  All Providers

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that the federal Provider Relief Fund portal has been reopened for eligible providers to submit their application. The deadline is now extended to August 28, 2020.

Examples of eligible Medicare/Medicaid/CHIP/dental providers include:

·        Providers who did not receive an initial payment that totals approximately two percent of their annual patient revenue.

·          Providers who did receive an initial payment but missed the June 3rd deadline to submit their revenue information.

·        Providers who were ineligible for prior General Distribution funds due to a change in ownership or because they did not have Medicare fee-for-service revenue in 2019.

·           Providers who previously received Phase 1 General Distribution payment(s), but rejected and returned the funds and are now interested in reapplying.

All eligible providers will only receive funding of up to two percent of their reported total revenue from patient care. The deadline for applying for funds is August 28, 2020.

·          Application, Instructions

·               Enhanced Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal

We encourage all providers to review these recommendations and apply through this portal. When in doubt:  apply or reapply if previously rejected.
