Action Required: Second COVID-19 Hotspot Payment

June 9, 2020

Today, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced $10 billion will be distributed across hospitals in COVID-19 hotspots. To determine eligibility for this funding, hospitals must submit updated information on the number of COVID-19 positive-inpatient admissions from Jan. 1, 2020 through June 10, 2020 by June 15 at 8:00 p.m. CDT. Data should be reported through the TeleTracking portal using the same login information used for previous submissions. Submitting these data is a prerequisite to payment, but is not a guarantee of eligibility for payment. More information can be found here.
