AHCA: Update on HHS Phase 3 Provider Relief Fund TIN Validations

Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

AHCA/NCAL has learned that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) plans to contact members that applied for Phase 2 or 3 stimulus relief from the HHS Provider Relief Fund and were initially informed that their application could not proceed due to an ineligible taxpayer identification number. HHS has indicated that this determination was done so in error and will provide an opportunity to apply for Phase 3 funding under a new January 6 application deadline.

Please note that HHS indicated nearly 5,000 applications were deemed ineligible incorrectly but did not share the list of providers that should expect this email from HHS.

Please contact COVID19@ahca.org with any questions.
