New Resources Help Make Decisions about Provider Relief & Other Funds

Regulation | April 23, 2020 | by Nicole Fallon

LeadingAge has published two new resources to help providers evaluate and understand their eligibility for new COVID-19 related funding.

The first tool, a calculator developed by LeadingAge Wisconsin, allows providers to evaluate the array of available COVID-19 funds, determine their eligibility and estimated amounts their organization may receive under each. A separate explainer document outlines how to use the tool.

The second resource entitled, “CARES ACT Provider Relief Fund Background, Considerations & Frequently Asked Questions” assists providers in evaluating their acceptance of the terms and conditions for use of the recently received Provider Relief Funds. Members will recall that HHS requires providers to attest to the terms and conditions for these funds within 30 days of receipt which for many providers will be May 10.

These resources will be updated as additional information becomes available from HHS and as additional funds are made available through Congressional action.
