The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will distribute payments up to $20 billion in Phase 3 of the General Distribution of the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund to offer financial relief to providers impacted by COVID-19.
You may be eligible regardless of whether you previously applied for, received, accepted, or rejected payment from prior PRF distributions. You should apply for funding if you experienced expenses and/or lost revenues attributable to COVID-19 that have not been reimbursed by other sources.
Under Phase 3, applicants that have not yet received Provider Relief Fund payments of 2% of patient revenue will receive a payment that, when combined with prior payments, equals 2% of patient care revenue.
Submit your application to the Provider Relief Fund Application and Attestation Portal between October 5, 2020, and November 6, 2020, at 11:59 p.m.
The Phase 3 application is slightly different from the Phase 2 form, requiring additional revenue and expense data. Even if you previously submitted revenue information, you will need to submit a new application. Instructions and a sample application form are available at hhs.gov/providerrelief. The website also includes a step-by-step application guide and FAQs.
HHS will host a webcast on October 15, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. to review the process and answer questions. Register here.
