CARES Provider Relief Fund Update
On April 24, HMM provided details on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Provider Relief Fund. This first memo can be accessed at the following URL: https://conta.cc/2x6cTTL

In addition to the previously announced “general distribution” payments, the Provider Relief Fund has opened a payment portal which allows facilities to submit additional information for possible supplemental “targeted distribution” payment allocation based on facility need and other eligibility criteria yet to be announced

The application for this supplemental payment can be accessed at: https://covid19.linkhealth.com/docusign/#/step/1

In order to submit this application, you will need the following information:
  • Tax ID
  • Medicare Provider ID (PTAN)
  • Last 6 digits of your deposit account number
  •  Amount of your last HHS payment
  •  Last tax return filed 2018 or 2019
  • Estimated gross revenue loss for March
  • Estimated gross revenue loss for April

HHS provided an FAQ on both the initial payments as well as supplemental funding. This FAQ can be found at: https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/20200425-general-distribution-portal-faqs.pdf

The CARES Provider Relief Fund has a homepage at https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/cares-act-provider-relief-fund/index.html with additional information.

As a reminder, any and all payments made under the CARES program are SUBJECT TO AUDIT by regulatory authorities.
