Additional Funding Opportunity for COVID-Impacted Health Care Providers
Monday, August 17, 2020
Posted by: Kyle Simon
Many health care providers are experiencing significant financial hardships in the COVID-19 pandemic. Congress provided $175 billion in relief funds to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to deliver financial relief to hospitals and
other health care providers, including those on the front lines of the coronavirus response. Since March, HHS, through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), has been distributing the funds to various providers in phases to support
their increased health care-related expenses or lost revenue that are attributable to COVID-19, and to reimburse claims for the testing and treatment of uninsured individuals diagnosed with COVID-19.
The latest phase of funding is now available through August 28, 2020. Visit HHS.gov/providerrelief to learn more and get started with the application.
