HHS extends application deadline for some provider relief funding

In June, HHS stated it would initiate a second phase of basic distribution for eligible companies that take part in Medicaid, CHIP and Medicaid managed care programs. In addition, the second stage permitted oral service suppliers to use.

The goal of the $15 billion, stage two allowance was to strike service providers that have actually not received payment from the very first round of basic distribution..

” From the start, HHSs administration of the company relief fund has actually been focused on distributing financing in a manner that is fast, fair and transparent,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “Extending the deadline for Medicaid suppliers and offering specific Medicare providers another shot at funding is another example of our work with suppliers to guarantee as many as possible get the assistance they need.”.
