On December 16th, many of our clients started to see their HHS PRF Phase-3 Subsidy pop up in their practice bank accounts. If you applied for this Phase-3 Subsidy but did not receive any funds yet, please contact HHS soon.

According to one of my clients: “I called HHS. I would never have received the funds as they informed me that I had to set up account with my Optum ID. I told them I already received funds but they said I had to set up in order for HHS to release funds. Very odd.”  

According to HHS:  If you have already submitted your application, you should have received confirmation regarding your application status. If you have additional questions, please contact the provider support line at (866) 569-3522; for TTY dial 711. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.

And don’t forget that all recipients of Provider Relief Fund (PRF) payments are required to comply with the reporting requirements described in the Terms and Conditions and specified in future directions issued by the Secretary between 1/15/21 and 2/15/21.  More info is available at: https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/cares-act-provider-relief-fund/reporting-auditing/index.html?language=en
