The federal Health and Human Services (HHS) Department will begin accepting applications Monday for a new round of emergency funding for physicians and practices affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new funds – $20 billion – are the third phase of distribution from the Provider Relief Fund, which is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act

Physicians and practices that already received, rejected, or accepted Provider Relief Fund payments will be eligible to apply for additional money, HHS said.

In addition, physicians who began practicing in between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2020, will be eligible, as well as an expanded group of behavioral health specialists, the agency said.

The window to apply for funds is Monday, Oct. 5, through Friday, Nov. 6. HHS encourages physicians to apply as quickly as possible to “expedite [its] review process and payment calculations.”
