Provider Relief Fund Application Deadline Extended to September 13

Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has extended the deadline for qualified providers of dental and Medicaid services to apply for CARES Act Provider Relief Funds under the current Phase 2 General Distribution. In addition, as reported last week, HHS announced that private-pay assisted living/memory care providers will also be eligible to apply for CARES Act Provider Relief Funds under Phase 2 General Distribution. The deadline to submit an application is now September 13, 2020.

Like other providers applying for Phase 2 funding, eligible dental and Medicaid providers and assisted living communities will receive a payment that is approximately 2% of their annual revenue from patient care.

Providers are encouraged to apply even if they are uncertain if they are eligible. Providers MUST apply by September 13, 2020, to be eligible to receive this payment. We do not anticipate this deadline being extended again.

HHS also announced last week that providers who received a payment under Phase 1 of the General Distribution are no longer prohibited from submitting an application under Phase 2 of the General Distribution. Providers who received a previous Phase 1 General Distribution payment are now eligible to apply and, if they have not yet received a payment that is approximately 2% of annual revenue from patient care, may receive additional funds.

For more detailed information, see the Provider Relief Fund webpage.
