HHS Stimulus, Round 2 – Time Sensitive

By Friday April 24th, HRSA had distributed $30 billion of Relief Funds to certain healthcare providers, in proportion to providers’ Medicare Fee for Service payments in 2019. There is another $20 billion being distributed, but only to those who received a part of the first $30 billion. So, if you received a share of the first Relief Fund Distribution, you may be eligible for a share of the $20 billion as well.
Round 2 will be done weekly, with each round closing at 11AM CST each Wednesday. The first round starts on April 29. This is not first come first serve, but it makes sense to get the application in early if you qualify.
As part of the distribution of the additional funds, HRSA is asking eligible providers to supply information from IRS tax filings and to supply estimates of lost revenues in March and April of 2020. If you want your share, here's what you need to do:
Go online to the Application Guide at: https://chameleoncloud.io/review/2977-5ea0af98f0fd0/prod. THIS IS VERY HELPFUL, SO DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
If you had previously received money from HHS and have determined you’re eligible to keep it, go to the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund Payment Attestation Portal by going to https://covid19.linkhealth.com/#/step/1You need to do this within 30 days of when you FIRST received money from HHS. We are now 2 weeks into this for some, so please do so ASAP.
Go to the General Distribution Portal at https://covid19.linkhealth.com/docusign/#/step/1. Have the following information on hand:
  • Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) that has received prior Provider Relief Fund payments.
  • Exact amount of payment already received.
  • Relief Fund payment transaction numbers/check numbers.
  • A copy of your most recently filed tax return (1120, 1120S, 1065, or Schedule C if a sole proprietor).
Be sure to read the Terms and Conditions for BOTH Provider Relief Fund Distributions:
