HHS Announces Phase 3 Provider CARES Act Payments – New Behavioral Health Provider Eligibility

Under this Phase 3 General Distribution allocation, providers that have already received Provider Relief Fund payments will be invited to apply for additional funding from this $20 Billion allocation. Phase 3 funding considers financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the coronavirus. Previously ineligible providers, such as those who began practicing in 2020 are invited to apply, and an expanded group of behavioral health providers confronting the emergence of increased mental health and substance use issues exacerbated by the pandemic are eligible for relief payments. The deadline for applications is November 6. Application Information – Phase 3.
