In an effort to deliver financial relief to health professionals impacted by COVID-19, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has  extended the deadline and expanded eligibility for Phase 2 of the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) General Distribution.  

The following two groups now have until Aug. 28, 2020, to apply: 

  1. Physicians and other healthcare professionals and entities who participate in Medicaid, Medicaid managed care and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). These groups are eligible to apply even if they previously received PRF funding from the Phase 1 Medicare General Distribution.
  2. Certain Medicare physicians and other healthcare professionals who experienced challenges with the Phase 1 Medicare General Distribution application. 

Practices can receive a total of approximately two percent of reported revenue from patient care from all PRF funding rounds. The final amount will be determined after your data is submitted.

Further eligibility information is available and the application portal can be found here.
