 HHS Releases Half of the $5 Billion in COVID Relief Funds Allocated for Nursing Homes

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released nearly $2.5 billion of a planned $5 billion distribution to nursing homes in support of increased testing, staffing, and personal protective equipment needs from the Provider Relief Fund (PRF), according to a COVID-19 update from the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).
HHS noted the Terms and Conditions​ for this allocation would differ from other PRF Terms and Conditions, the association said.
In other pandemic developments, HHS has released letters to some providers indicating they had not submitted financial information needed for Phase 1 Provider Relief Fund documentation. AHCA/NCAL said the letters do require financial information to be submitted and should not be disregarded. Read More.

Lastly, AHCA/NCAL has developed a 
template cover letter to help providers include relevant information when communicating with HHS about use of Provider Relief Fund dollars. Read More.
