NASH Asks HHS for Provider Relief Fund Grants

Phase 3 distributions of Provider Relief Fund grants are long overdue and sorely needed by private safety-net hospitals, the National Alliance of Safety-Net Hospitals has declared in a letter to new Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra.

NASH’s letter to Becerra notes that the COVID-19 emergency has posed a special challenge to private safety-net hospitals and that in too many cases, those safety-net hospitals have not received appropriate support from the CARES Act’s Provider Relief Fund.  In its letter, NASH asks Secretary Becerra to direct HHS staff to distribute the more than $20 billion remaining in the Provider Relief Fund as soon as possible and to make safety-net hospitals a priority in that distribution.
