Eligible assisted living facility operators and other eligible provider organizations now have until September 13, 2020, to apply for the phase 2 general distribution of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Provider Relief Fund. That is the deadline to complete the first step of the application process, the tax identification number (TIN) validation process
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced on June 9 that approximately $15 billion in grants would be distributed to Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program provider organizations that are experiencing lost revenues or increased expenses due to COVID-19. The original deadline to apply had been July 20, then was changed to August 3 and then August 28.
HHS later said that even provider organizations that received a phase 1 payment could submit applications under phase 2 if they have not yet received a payment that is approximately 2% of annual revenue from direct care services to individuals for their TIN as reported on their most recent Form 990. Also eligible for phase 2 now are Medicare provider organizations who missed the June 3 deadline to submit their financial information to HHS and have not received a second payment under phase 1, and Medicare Part A provider organizations who had a change in ownership in 2019-2020 and have not yet received a Provider Relief Fund payment.
This was reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on September 1, 2020.
