May 11, 2020

Administration officials have announced details on the allocation of the remaining provider relief funding created by the CARES Act. The Act authorized $100 billion for the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund, an initial $30 billion of which was disbursed earlier this month to providers based on Medicare fee-for-service billing. According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the remaining funds will be disbursed through different general, targeted, rural, Indian Health Service, and uninsured funding streams. This reflects previous ACC recommendations that HHS distribute these funds in a transparent manner and ensure clinicians and practices be included.
