Dear MedChi Members and Maryland Physicians:

Last week, we shared with you the latest updates from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on the second round of disbursements for the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund . We also shared some helpful FAQs on the HHS General Distribution Portal .

Today, we want to share more details and resources to support you in navigating the complexities of accessing these relief funds:

  • Although some physicians will automatically be sent an advance payment based off the revenue data they submit in CMS cost reports, those physicians without adequate cost report data on file will need to submit their revenue information to the General Distribution Portal. (If you are unsure if you need to complete the portal, call the CARES Provider Relief line at 1-866-569-3522.)

  • This portal should be accessed and completed by anyone who lost revenue in March and/or can estimate lost revenue for April. You will need you Tax Identification Number (TIN) to access the portal.

MEDCHI IS YOUR RESOURCE - We are here to help you work through the complexities of accessing these funds. Please don't hesitate to reach out with specific questions. We will continue to develop and share resources based on your FAQs and requests.

Thank you for all that you do as physicians, healers, and heroes.
