HHS Announces Updates to Provider Relief Fund

HHS today announced that it plans to distribute approximately $15 billion to eligible providers that participate in state Medicaid and CHIP programs and have not received a payment from the Provider Relief Fund general allocation. Beginning tomorrow, eligible providers will be able to report their annual patient revenue through an enhanced Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal. This information will be used to help determine the payment received by each eligible provider, which will be at least 2% of reported gross revenue from patient care. HHS also announced an additional $10 billion allocation for safety net hospitals. To learn more about these updates, click here.
