HHS Extends Deadline for Attestation, Acceptance of Terms and Conditions for Provider Relief Fund Payments to 45 Days
Published: May 8, 2020
The attestation deadline for healthcare providers that wish to keep the grants the US Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) began distributing April 10 has been extended from 30 to 45 days. The attestation portal is here. For providers that received payment on April 10, for example, the deadline has been extended from May 9 to May 24.
This grant fund is part of the $100 billion in relief included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 that was signed by President Trump on March 27, 2020. As a reminder, these are payments, not loans, to healthcare providers, and will not need to be repaid.
Within 45 days of receiving the payment, providers must sign the attestation confirming receipt of the funds and agreeing to the Terms and Conditions of payment. If a provider receives payment and does not wish to comply with the Terms and Conditions, the provider must contact HHS within 45 days of receipt of payment and remit the full payment to HHS.
For additional information or to check on the status of your grant, please visit the Provider Relief Fund page or call the CARES Provider Relief line at (866) 569-3522.
