The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced a 45-day deadline extension for providers who are receiving payments from the Provider Relief Fund (CARES Act and the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act) to accept the terms and conditions.

Under the extension, providers now have 90 days from the date they received a payment to accept HHS terms and conditions or return the funds. For example, the deadline for providers who received payment on April 10 is extended to July 9 from May 24. In response to requests from front line providers, HHS agreed to allow additional time to review and agree to Provider Relief Fund terms and conditions or return the funds.
