  • HHS announced that more than $560 million in Provider Relief Fund payments will be made available to over 4,100 medical providers this week. According to the announcement, $11.5 billion in Phase 4 payments have now gone to 78,000 providers across all states, D.C., and five territories with this most recent allocation. The department says this phase of payments has been more equity-focused, such as prioritizing the reimbursement of a higher percentage of losses for smaller providers and including bonus payments for providers who work with Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Medicaid beneficiaries.
