Sources of Financial Support for Health Care Providers during the COVID-19 Pandemic

As urged by the AHA, Congress and the Administration have taken a number of steps to make available financial resources for health care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these policies were authorized through the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.

This document, developed by Jones Day, provides a summary of these provisions, information on eligibility and the amount of funding available through each opportunity.

The provisions highlighted include, but are not limited to:

  • The Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund
  • Grants through the Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • Accelerated and advanced Medicare payments
  • Suspension of the Medicare sequestration
  • Expanded coverage of telehealth and COVID-19 testing
  • The Paycheck Protection Program
  • The Main Street New and Expanded Loan Facilities
  • Various employer tax provisions
