HHS Gives Nursing Homes $1.1 Billion More in Federal Relief Funding

The federal government began sending $1.1 billion in COVID-19 relief funding to nursing homes last week to help providers cope with lost revenues and increased expenses caused by the pandemic. On December 16, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced plans to distribute $24.5 billion to more than 70,000 health care providers as part of Phase 3 of the Provider Relief Fund program.

Nursing homes will receive $1.1 billion of the Phase 3 funding, building on the incentive payment program and $15 billion in aggregate funding already distributed, the agency noted. More
