HHS distributes $323,633,599 to Pennsylvania hospitals heavily impacted by COVID-19 pandemic

Posted
The Department of Health and Human Services is distributing $12 billion allocated for a targeted distribution to hospitals in areas that have been particularly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, including $323,633,599 to hospitals in Pennsylvania.

President Trump is providing support to health care providers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic through the $175 billion in relief funding to hospitals and other healthcare providers on the front lines of the coronavirus response. Funding is provided through the bipartisan CARES Act and the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act.

$12 billion is going to 395 hospitals that provided inpatient care for 100 or more COVID-19 patients through April 10, and will be used to support healthcare-related expenses or lost revenue attributable to COVID-19 and to ensure uninsured Americans can get testing and treatment for COVID-19.

The distribution methodology takes into consideration the challenges faced by facilities serving a significantly disproportionate number of low-income patients.
