Providers must submit their data by July 20, 2020. Before applying through the Enhanced Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal, applicants should:

Provider Relief Fund Terms and Conditions

  • All providers who have received Provider Relief Fund payments must agree to the program Terms and Conditions if they wish to keep the funds.

This announcement means providers have now been granted 90 days from the date they received a payment to accept HHS Terms and Conditions or return the funds.
