On May 20, 2020 the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reminded providers of an important deadline quickly approaching. Any providers who received funds from the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund’s initial distribution of $50 billion general distribution prior to April 24, 2020 and are interested in receiving an additional payment must agree to the terms and conditions for the funds and provide an accounting of their annual revenues by way of submitting financial statements or tax forms to the website’s portal no later than June 3, 2020. This deadline excludes any providers who have a case pending for their eligibility of the distribution of funds, however, all cases needing adjudication must be received by HHS no later the deadline of June 3, 2020.
Any providers who have received funds from HHS’ initial distribution must either agree to the terms and conditions or reject the funds on the HHS website’s portal here. If providers do not accept the terms and conditions but retain the funds, this will serve as a default acceptance of the terms and conditions.
HHS is making the names of providers who received funds through the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund public information. For additional information on all Relief funds, FAQs, and list of providers that received and attested for the funds- visit the HHS CARES Act Provider Relief Fund webpage.
If you or your organization is interested in receiving an additional payment, don’t wait until June 3rd to submit your revenue information. For any questions or help navigating this process, WebsterRogers LLP is here to help.
