HHS: Here's how remaining $70B in COVID-19 funding will be distributed to providers

The Trump administration has laid out a plan for how to disperse the remaining $70 billion to providers struggling financially due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) allocated $30 billion to providers out of a $100 billion pot passed in an economic stimulus package by Congress a few weeks ago.
HHS Secretary Alex Azar said on a call with reporters on Wednesday the agency will distribute money for skilled nursing facilities and providers that rely primarily on Medicaid.
Azar added the rest will be reserved for a second tranche of COVID-19 hotspot funding and to cover the uninsured claims at Medicare rates for any providers.
The timing for when providers will get the money will depend.
HHS will launch a portal next week at hhs.gov/providerrelief where providers can submit revenue information for the $20 billion in general funds.
