Provider Relief Fund Focus Group Sessions

DHHS and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) are organizing two focus group sessions on the Medicaid and CHIP distribution of the Provider Relief Fund (PRF). The PRF supports American families, workers, and healthcare providers in the battle against the COVID-19 outbreak. HHS is distributing $175 billion to hospitals and healthcare providers on the front lines of the coronavirus response. The purpose of these focus groups is to identify opportunities to increase application volumes in the current Medicaid/CHIP distribution, which is intended to support eligible providers with $15B in funding. The focus group discussion will center on awareness of the PRF program and Medicaid/CHIP distribution, understanding of program components, such as eligibility, and technical challenges faced during the application process.

These sessions will be held on July 21 from 6:30-7:30pm and July 22 from 3:00-4:00pm. We would greatly appreciate your participation and look forward to hearing your valuable input on the experiences of providers with the Medicaid and CHIP distribution of the PRF. To confirm your participation, please send an email to [email protected] with your name, email, title, organization and state, and note which session you would like to attend.
