As a part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has distributed $30 billion to Medicare-enrolled physicians and providers through direct deposit disbursements.
These relief funds came at a critical time and do not need to be paid back, but attestation is required within the first 30 days of receipt of payment (it will be labeled “stimulus payment” or ”HHSPAYMENT”). Find the link to provide Medicare payment attestation here. The only information you will need to complete the process is the tax ID, the last six digits of the account in which it was deposited, and the amount of the deposit.
