Provider Relief Fund Application Deadline Extended

Provider Relief Fund application deadline extended
The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) reopened the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) General Distribution portal for certain providers and recently announced the deadline to apply has been extended to Sept. 13. The portal is reopened for providers who:
- Did not receive an initial payment that totals approximately 2 percent of their annual patient revenue;
- Received an initial payment, but missed the June 3 deadline to submit their revenue information for additional funds;
- Were ineligible for prior General Distribution funds due to a change in ownership and did not have Medicare fee-for-service revenue in 2019; or
- Previously received Phase 1 General Distribution payment(s), but rejected and returned the funds and are now interested in reapplying.
Additionally, HHS planned to release detailed instructions and a data collection template for PRF recipient reporting requirements on Aug. 17. However, just days before, HHS announced that this information would not be ready by that date but will “soon be made available.”
