Dentists who were previously ineligible for relief can now apply to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Provider Relief Fund. The American Dental Association worked closely with HHS and the Health Resources and Services Administration, which administers the fund, to implement this for dentists, and as a result, eligible dentists will receive a reimbursement of 2% of their annual reported patient revenue.
Dentists have until July 24 to apply for funding through the Enhanced Provider Relief Fund Payment Portal. The fund already was open to Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program dental providers.
