Practice Financing Updates—Main Street Lending Program & CARES Act Allocations

Larger practices seeking financial support during the health crisis may apply for relief via the Federal Reserve’s Main Street Lending Program. In addition, HHS has begun distributing $30 billion allocated via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to practices that received Medicare fee-for-service reimbursements in 2019; we encourage those practices to check to see if their disbursement has arrived.

News & Knowledge
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
