Provider Relief Fund Coalition Letter to HHS on Ongoing COVID-19 Pressures (April 2021)

Ensuring coordination and communication among the various divisions of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is a critical role as the pandemic continues and health care providers struggle to meet the needs of the nation.  And, we (the undersigned organizations ranging from hospitals and physicians to providers of post-acute care and long-term services and supports, including those delivering home and community-based services) look forward to working with you particularly as the providers we support struggle to continue to deliver care during the pandemic. The Provider Relief Fund (PRF) has been of critical importance this year and has played a key role stabilizing our nation’s health care delivery system.
