Deadline Extended for Relief Fund Applications

HHS extended the deadline for eligible Medicaid and CHIP physicians and organizations to submit information and apply for funding from the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund from July 20 until August 3.

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.
