Deadline to apply is July 20
— The ADA is encouraging eligible Medicaid and CHIP providers to apply as soon as possible to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Enhanced Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal
ahead of the department’s July 20 deadline.
Although HHS has indicated a future Dental Targeted Distribution Fund is in the works, the department stated in its FAQs
that “dental providers should not have the expectation that there will be [an advantage] by applying for funds from one distribution over another” and that “dentists should apply for a Provider Relief Fund payment in the first Targeted Distribution in which they are eligible.”
HHS is also hosting a June 25 webinar at 2 p.m. EST
to assist eligible Medicaid and CHIP providers with their applications.
