HHS has extended the deadline to apply for funding from the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund from July 20 until August 3, 2020 for eligible Medicaid and CHIP physicians and organizations to submit information. HHS is distributing approximately $15 billion to eligible physicians who have not previously received a payment from the Provider Relief Fund. The payment amount will be at least 2 percent of reported gross revenue from patient care, and the final amount will be determined based on submitted data, including the number of Medicaid patients served. HHS has created a fact sheet explaining the application process and answering frequently asked questions.
