CARES Act Provider Relief Fund: Data

View a list of providers who received a payment from the Provider Relief Fund and attested to the terms and conditions.

General Distribution ($50 billion)

$50 billion is allocated proportional to providers' share of 2018 net patient revenue. The allocation methodology is designed to provide relief to providers, who bill Medicare fee-for-service, with at least 2% of that provider's gross patient revenue regardless of the provider's payer mix. Payments are determined based on the lesser of 2% of a provider's 2018 (or most recent complete tax year) net patient revenue or the sum of incurred losses for March and April.

$24.5 Billion Phase 3 General Distribution

HHS has made $24.5 billion in new funding available for Phase 3 General Distribution allocation. Providers are being funded for a baseline patient care payment plus an add-on that considers financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the coronavirus.

Information about the Initial $30 Billion Distribution

On April 10, 2020, HHS immediately distributed $30 billion to eligible providers throughout the American healthcare system. These are payments, not loans, to healthcare providers, and do not need to be repaid.

*Note that these breakdowns show the amount allocated to billing organizations for eligible recipients based on the billing organizations' address, not necessarily the state where the providers are operating.
