Phase 3 Provider Relief Fund Now Open Through Nov. 6 - Dentists Encouraged to Apply

Last week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the Phase 3 distribution of the Provider Relief Fund. Dentists who have experienced lost revenue or increased expenses due to COVID-19 are encouraged to apply by November 6 as outlined below:
  • Additional payment - Dentists who were previously awarded a distribution from the Provider Relief Fund are eligible to apply for an add-on payment. Those who accepted or rejected a payment from a previous distribution are also eligible.
  • Newly eligible - Dentists who started practicing January through March 2020.
  • Corrections - Dentists who received, accepted, or rejected payment from the Provider Relief Fund previously and did not receive approximately two percent of annual revenues from patient care may now receive this amount, as well as their Phase 3 payment.
The ADA has updated their Provider Relief Fund FAQ to address questions concerning the Phase 3 Distribution. HHS will be hosting a free webinar on Thursday, October 15 at 2:00 PM with more information about the application process. If you are ready to apply, proceed to the Provider Relief Fund Application.
