Relief Fund Deadlines Approaching for Health Care Providers
On May 20, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that providers have until June 3, 2020, to accept the Terms and Conditions and submit their revenue information to support receiving the second round of payment from the Provider Relief Fund. Providers who received first-round funding must attest to the first payment before they can apply for the second round.
The second important deadline is for the attestation of the first round funding. Providers have 45 days from receipt to sign the HHS terms and conditions. Those providers who received the first round payment on April 10, 2020, have until May 24, 2020, to make the attestation or return the payment. If providers do not return the funds by their deadline, HHS will deem they have accepted the terms and conditions.
