RDN Medicare Providers Eligible for Emergency Relief Funds

04/14/2020 - To assist RDN Medicare providers whose revenues have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency, RDNs who billed Medicare in 2019 will automatically receive a one-time payment equal to approximately 6.2% of their total Medicare fee for service payments in 2019. These payments are grants, not loans and will not need to be repaid.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) began distributing the funds on April 10, 2020 via direct deposit or mailed checks (based on how the provider typically gets paid). Payments will come to the TIN which normally receives Medicare payments (group or solo practice).
