Tennessee Infrastructure Plan for COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution
On Wednesday, the Tennessee Department of Health announced the state’s infrastructure plan for distribution of COVID-19 vaccines once they become available. The Plan was developed by the Tennessee Department of Health with the input of a Pandemic Vaccine Planning Stakeholder Group, which has been meeting bi-weekly over the last few months.
TPCA participates on the Stakeholder Group and is named as a participant in the Plan.
Additional Provider Relief Funding
On October 1, The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced it will make an additional $20 billion in Provider Relief funds available to ‘frontline’ providers, including those that have already received their full amount from the General Distribution. Providers were previously eligible to receive up to 2% of net patient revenues.
Applications are due on November 6.
