The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has extended the deadline for Phase 2 General Distribution funding.
September 9, 2020
The new deadline for medical and dental practices to file application is Sunday, September 13, 2020.
The Phase 2 distribution is intended for Medicaid, CHIP, and dental providers, who didn’t receive funding in the first round of distributions. The HHS allocated $15 billion from the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund for these providers, and applicants can receive up to 2% of their reported revenue from patient care.
Eligibility good news!
The extension also brings good news for Medicare providers who missed out on the first phase of Medicare general distributions. Providers who experienced a change in ownership in 2019 or 2020 and were previously ineligible to apply, may also now be eligible for Phase 2 distributions.
