HHS extends phase two deadline for Provider Relief Fund distributions

The U.S. Department of Wellness and Human Solutions is extending the second stage application deadline to Friday, August 28, for basic distribution to Medicaid, Medicaid managed care, Kid’s Wellness Insurance Plan and dental providers.

This is the second time HHS has prolonged the deadline. The first deadline was July 20, prolonged until eventually August 3. Suppliers have explained they required additional time to use.

The office has allotted $fifteen billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Financial Protection Act Company Relief Fund to be dispersed to suitable providers that failed to acquire funding through the first round. Applicants can acquire up to two% of their described revenue from patient care.

The extension also applies to Medicare providers who skipped out on implementing through the first stage of Medicare basic distribution. These providers can commence implementing for up to two% of their annual revenue through the 7 days of August 10.
