The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Friday, May 22 issued a release stating that they are extending the timeline for acceptance of Provider Relief Fund terms and conditions an additional 45 days. This means providers now have 90 days from the date they received a payment to accept HHS Terms and Conditions or return the funds. All providers who have received Provider Relief Fund payments must agree to the program Terms and Conditions in order to keep the funds.
