Additional Funds Distributed to Hospitals with High COVID-19 Admissions

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has distributed a second round of funding to hospitals which have been greatly impacted by COVID-19. This second round of funding came from the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund.

Hospitals were asked to report their COVID-19 positive inpatient admissions from January 1 through June 10 to the HHS. Using this data HHS distributed funds to hospitals with more than 161 COVID-19 admissions during the time period. Funds were also distributed to hospitals who exceeded the average ratio of COVID-19 admissions per bed. Hospitals were paid $50,000 per eligible admission during the time frame. South Dakota received $23.6 million from this second round of disbursement. HHS has previously distributed $12 billion to high impact areas.
