The U.S. Department of Health and Humans Services (HHS) has extended the deadline for eligible providers to submit their application
for provider relief funds. The revised date is September 13, 2020. It will also be expanded to include assisted living facilities.
Examples of eligible Medicare/Medicaid/CHIP/dental providers include:
• Providers who did not receive an initial payment that totals approximately 2 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 2 percent of their reported total revenue from patient care. The deadline for applying for funds is August 28, 2020.
