WASHINGTON, D.C. – The CARES Act’s Provider Relief Fund was designed to support American families, workers, and health care providers in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump ’s Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) was tasked with distributing the $175 billion to hospitals and health care providers on the front lines of the coronavirus response.

Recipients Of The Provider Relief Fund Had To Settle With The Government For Flase Claims

But a recent investigation by Accountable.US found that at least five recipients of the Provider Relief Fund recently had to settle with the government for false claims, Medicare fraud, and other allegations. This comes as non-Medicare providers continue to struggle to obtain funds during the ongoing crisis. Places like mental health and addiction centers and hospitals that serve low-income patients have struggled to access federal funds while the biggest wealthiest hospital chains received billions in aid.

"The Provider Relief Fund, like many other COVID-19 response efforts by the Trump administration, has been mismanaged, poorly regulated, and failed to provide relief to those who need it most,” said Kyle Herrig, president of Accountable.US. “Either by willful negligence or general incompetence, this administration continues to show the country it has no interest in doing what is right or helping those who need the most help to survive this pandemic."

The companies who received these “no strings attached” funds from the government despite settling with the government and paying large fines include:

  • Diversicare
  • Decatur Hospital Authority
  • Centra Health Inc. & Blue Ridge ENT
  • Cardiac Associates, P.C.
  • Carewell Urgent Care Centers
  • The Medical Centers of Central Georgia
