October 20, 2020
On October 15, HRSA hosted a Provider Relief Fund – Phase 3 Webinar. (There was another Webinar held for BH providers exclusively on the 16th.) We sent you our notes from the Webinar on the 16th over the weekend. Materials from the event on the 15th are linked below.
Remember: Last day to apply for Phase 3 funds is November 6 and YOU SHOULD apply for Phase 3 funds, even if you have not yet received your Phase 2 award.
Your application for Phase 3 funding will be the impetus for HHS to review your records, first to ensure you have received or are scheduled to receive 2% of your gross revenues (all payers) as was the idea behind the Phase 2 funding process, AND THEN, after Nov. 6 the feds will determine how much more you will receive (beyond 2%) via your Phase 3 application. So you should think of your Phase 3 application (if eligible) as an insurance policy that will generate at least the 2% (as discussed above).
According to HRSA, prior to Phase 3, approximately 5,500 behavioral health providers nationwide had applied for funding. This yielded over $$400 million in awards.
Check out the information below and if you need assistance I will do my best to help.
