Letter to Request Hearing on Distribution of Provider Relief


05.13.20

Excerpt: “While the Administration has been transparent in how it has allocated the funds to health care providers, Congress would benefit from a deeper understanding of the methodologies employed to distribute these funds, as well as details on the amount of funding that remains and HHS’s plans for future allocations. The Subcommittee is well-equipped to explore these questions. The Subcommittee should also examine whether rural practitioners, children’s hospitals, and other health care provider groups who rely more on Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or commercial payors for their revenue are receiving the optimal proportion of support through the Fund,” wrote Burgess.
