The Department of Health and Human Services has extended to Sept. 13 the deadline for applying for its Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund “Phase 2 General Distribution.” The previous deadline was Aug. 28. Earlier this month, HHS clarified that those who bill Medicare, Medicaid, Medicaid Managed

Care or the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or are dental providers, are eligible to apply as long as they have not already received 2% of their patient revenue from the fund. HHS also stated that first-time or previous applicants may apply as long as they haven’t already received 2% of their patient revenue. This includes Medicare Part A providers who experienced a change in ownership and billed Medicare fee-for-service in 2019 or 2020 and had previously been ineligible to apply.
