Butzel Long hosts free webinar on April 22 focused on CARES Act Healthcare Provider Relief Payments: Are There Strings Attached to ‘No Strings Attached’ Money?
DETROIT, Mich. – The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) is rolling out payments and advances to healthcare providers to assist them with covering their costs and obtaining necessary resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The programs include the Accelerated and Advanced Payment Program (AAPD), which is an advance or loan against future billings; the Provider Relief Fund (PRF), which are outright grants that will not have to be repaid; plus possible future relief payments to some providers that HHS is still working on.
Attorneys from Butzel Long law firm’s Health Care Industry Team are hosting a free informational webinar from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. Participants will learn the latest on how healthcare providers can obtain these funds, and what they have to do in order to qualify and stay eligible. To register, visit www.butzel.com/events.
Notably, the programs are moving fast, payments are already being made, but they come with some conditions and complexity. There are also important deadlines that providers will have to meet in the next couple of weeks, as well as some ongoing accounting and reporting requirements.
