Provider Relief Fund Call with HHS

Provider Relief Fund Call with HHS

HHS hosted a last minute call Thursday Nov. 5th primarily for Assisted Living providers but on the topic of clarifying issues related to Phase 2 and Phase 3 applications. The session was recorded. Here is the link to the recording with Nick Uehlecke at HHS and his colleagues from HRSA.  Many questions were provider specific but there were many providers who described being “stuck” or in a holding pattern between Phase 2 & 3. Several were still awaiting TIN validation.  If providers (e.g., ALs) have applied for Phase 2 or Phase 3 and are still awaiting their TIN to be validated, they should  NOT cancel their application and start over with a Phase 3 application, this will NOT speed things up. HHS also encouraged members who have been waiting several weeks or months without TIN validation or payment from Phase 2 to submit their information to their association.  LeadingAge National is working to create a process for collecting this information.
