Urgent care operators have an opportunity to secure more funding to fight the detrimental economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic by way of the second round of distribution under the Provider Relief Fund. Note that this is separate from the Paycheck Protection Program. Rather, the PRF is intended to support “families, workers, and the heroic healthcare providers in the battle against the COVID-19 outbreak.” Providers who see Medicare patients should have received funds under the first wave of payments automatically—however, the second requires an application process. Requirements are spelled out in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Instructions For Phase 2 – General Distribution Application Via Provider Relief Fund Application and Attestation Portal. The deadline for filing is September 13.
