Additional Details on Phase 3 Funding from the HHS Provider Relief Fund

Posted by Argentum on October 16, 2020

This week, Jim Parker, Senior Advisor to the Secretary for Health Reform at HHS, spoke to Argentum’s Executive Advisory Board (EAB) about COVID-19 relief funding for assisted living communities. Members of the EAB had an opportunity to ask questions regarding the Phase 3 General Distribution from the Provider Relief Fund. This distribution of $20 billion was announced on October 1 and is open to all eligible providers from earlier Provider Relief Fund distributions.

Parker indicated that the Phase 3 distribution is meant to bring all qualified providers to a “baseline” distribution equivalent to 2% of revenue for a single year. Additionally, once that threshold has been met for all applicants, HHS will develop a methodology to disburse the remaining funds.

HHS Announces Phase 3 General Distribution

Posted by Argentum on October 5, 2020

On October 1, HHS announced the next phase of funding from the Provider Relief Fund, for which assisted living providers are eligible. This funding, which includes $20 billion for providers on the front lines of the pandemic, is intended to offer the opportunity for providers that have already received funding to apply for additional funding based on financial losses and changes in operating expenses as a result of COVID-19.  According to HHS, it is “designed to balance an equitable payment of 2% of annual revenue from patient care for all applicants plus an add-on payment to account for revenue losses and expenses attributable to COVID-19.”
