HHS Announces $20 Billion for Healthcare Providers

Spurred by prevalence of anxiety and depressive disorders.

The Department of Health and Human Services announced a fresh round of $20 billion for frontline healthcare providers dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

The new allocation will consider financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the virus. Providers that have already received relief fund payments may apply for more funds, the agency said.

Providers who have recently begun practice and behavioral health providers grappling with a surge in mental health and substance abuse issues since the virus outbreak can also apply.

The move comes as an increase in symptoms of anxiety and depressive disorders surged in the second quarter compared to a year ago according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Over $100 billion in relief funding to providers has already been disbursed in past months.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For medical first responders and those dealing with mental health issues brought on by the COVID-19 virus.
  • For all who have been adversely financially impacted by the coronavirus.
  • That the Department of Health and Human Services would be used by God to bring healing and relief to Americans.
