Recognizing the importance of delivering funds in a fast and transparent manner, $30 billion is being distributed immediately through a program administered by the Department of Health and Human Services – with payments arriving via direct deposit beginning April 10, 2020 – to eligible providers throughout the American health care system. These payments are unrelated to the Accelerated and Advanced Payments you may have requested from Medicare.
The automatic payments will come from Optum Bank with "HHSPAYMENT" as the payment description.
Find more information about these payments at www.hhs.gov/provider-relief/index.html or by calling the US Department of Health and Human Services CARES Provider Relief line at 866-569-3522.
