On Oct. 1, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services announced $20 billion in new funding for providers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this Phase 3 General Distribution allocation, providers that have already received Provider Relief Fund payments are invited to apply for additional funding that considers financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the COVID-19. Previously ineligible providers, such as those who began practicing in 2020 are also invited to apply, and an expanded group of behavioral health providers confronting the emergence of increased mental health and substance use issues exacerbated by the pandemic are also eligible for relief payments. Providers must apply for funding by Nov. 6. Visit hhs.gov/providerrelief for details and updates on the Provider Relief Program.
