HHS Announces Additional PRF Funding Available

HHS announced on Oct. 1 that it is making an additional $20 billion in Provider Relief Fund (PRF) funding available to “frontline” providers — including those who have already received the full amount they were eligible for under the General Distribution. For FQHCs, this amount was two percent of 2018 net patient revenues. It is unclear how much any provider will be eligible for; it will likely depend on total requests received. HHS recommends that providers apply early, starting the week of October 4. NACHC and PACHC are working to learn more and will share more information as we can.
