On-Demand | HHS PRF Tranche 4 | Important Funding Opportunity for EMS Providers
Recorded September 29, 2021 | Speaker: Scott Moore, Esq.
Don’t miss out! Today, September 29, 2021, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will open the Provider Relief Fund & Attestation Application Portal ( https://cares.linkhealth.com/#/ ) which provides an important funding opportunity for EMS providers.
This funding opportunity will distribute $25.5 billion in additional Phase 4 General Distribution for EMS agencies and American Rescue Plan (ARP) payments for qualified rural providers who furnish services to Medicaid/CHIP and Medicare beneficiaries. It is critical for all #EMS providers to apply for this funding opportunity regardless of previous funding allocations. We have learned that many EMS providers did not apply for the Tranche 3 funding opportunity because they did not believe that they would be eligible to receive funds under the announced funding formula. Due to the limited number of applicants in Tranche 3, HRSA modified the formula and many who failed to apply would have received funds. We are recommending that all EMS agencies apply to receive the funding that they desperately need. The deadline for applying is 11:59 p.m. on October 26, 2021. There is no penalty for applying.
