Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen, both D-Nev., say the federal government has awarded another $70 million to Nevada health care providers, more than two-thirds of it to rural facilities.
This money is in addition to the $315 million already
granted to Nevada health care providers under the CARES Act.
They said the funding is crucial to supporting both
frontline urban providers and the rural safety net.
In a joint statement, they said $18,760,725 will go to those
urban providers treating the large numbers of inpatients.
Another $51,470,536, they said, will help support 21 rural
hospitals, community health centers and clinics across the state.
They urged health care providers who have not submitted their information to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to do so at www.hhs.gov/providerelief.
Those providers treating and testing uninsured patients can apply for reimbursement at www.hrsa.gov/coviduninsured.claim.
