WASHINGTON, DC – HHS is accepting applications for the $20 billion Phase 3 General Distribution under the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) until November 6. All DMEPOS suppliers that have done business with Medicare or Medicaid are eligible to apply for this funding.
HHS will first prioritize health care providers that have not received 2% of net patient revenue first and will disperse additional funding based on the information provided by the applicant pool. Due to this, HHS recommends providers submit their applications as soon as possible to speed up the calculation and disbursement of funds.
Applications are submitted at the Application and Attestation Portal. For members interested in learning more about the application process, below are some resources:

- Provider Support Line for application specific questions: (866) 569-3522
AAHomecare strongly recommends all applicants to thoroughly review the Phase 3 General Distribution Terms and Conditions. In addition, there are reporting requirements for recipients that received $10,000 or more in aggregate from the Provider Relief Fund, and all recipients are subject to future audits.
