HHS Launches 3rd Round of Provider Relief Fund Payments

The next round of Provider Relief Fund distributions from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is now underway.

HHS launched Phase 3 of its Provider Relief Fund distributions Dec. 16, sending $24.5 billion in financial aid to more than 70,000 health care providers, the agency said in a news release.

HHS said calculations will take into account revenue losses and expenses attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic and invited previous applicants to seek additional funding, according to ADA News, which said the ADA worked closely with HHS and the Health Resources and Services Administration to ensure dentists were included in the Provider Relief Fund.

The agency provided a state-by-state breakdown of Phase 3 payments that will be updated until distribution closes at the end of January.
