CARES Act Provider Relief Fund Application Guide: Additional Funds Request Guide

The U.S. Department of Health Human Services (HHS) has begun distributing the remaining $20 billion of the $50 billion general distribution to Medicare providers to augment providers’ allocations so that the whole $50 billion general distribution is allocated proportional to providers’ share of net patient revenue.
