Reminder: HHS Provider Relief Fund

in Finance & Reimbursement

NYSHFA|NYSCAL would like to remind you of the August 28th deadline for the HHS three approaches to securing funding, including opportunities for providers who previously experienced funding challenges due to change in ownership. 

Please refer to AHCA bulletin below for further details: 

On July 31, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced three new approaches to securing funding:

  • The Medicaid allocation application has been extended to August 28, 2020.
  • For certain Medicare providers, HHS will allow those providers who missed the opportunity to apply for additional funding from the $20 billion portion of the $50 billion Phase 1 Medicare General Distribution. The opportunity to apply will begin on August 10 and will close on August 28. 

Payments for Providers Who Had a Change in Ownership

Also starting the week of August 10, providers who experienced challenges receiving Provider Relief Fund payments due to change in ownership may submit their revenue information, along with documentation proving a change in ownership for consideration for Provider Relief Fund payment. HHS has said it will accept this information through August 28.
