The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), is distributing $2 billion more in Provider Relief Fund (PRF) funds. Coupled with the $9 billion distributed in the general distribution, this brings total phase 4 payments to $11 billion, leaving $6 billion in pledged funds.
These funds will reach more than 7,600 providers across the country this week. The phase 4 payments have an increased focus on equity, including reimbursing a higher percentage of losses for smaller providers and incorporating “bonus” payments for providers who serve Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Medicare beneficiaries. HRSA provides a state-by-state breakdown of phase 4 payments to date.
