Family practice owners,
Last week the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced its plans for distributing the remainder of the provider relief funds authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. At the time, they indicated an additional $20 billion was being allocated to Medicare providers – both independent providers and health care/hospital systems. This weekend, we received more details about how the funding will be distributed.
Unlike the first round of funding, you need to take action to receive any money from this allocation. It is important that you act quickly to submit the necessary information as we anticipate this money will go quickly.
· To get stared, you’ll need your practice’s Taxpayer Identification Number or TIN.
· For details about what information you need to complete the application visit the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund Application Guide
· To apply, visit the CARES Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal.
· If you have questions, visit the General Distribution Portal FAQs or call the CARES Provider Relief line at 866-569-3522.
Again, we encourage you to complete this information as soon as possible to increase your chances of getting money from this latest funding allocation.
