The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will be holding an Oct. 15 webcast to help dentists with questions about the Phase 3 General Distribution of the Provider Relief Fund.
The webinar is free and will take place at 2 p.m. Central. Preregistration is recommended to participate and providers can also recommend questions they’d like to see answered during the event.
The Provider Relief Fund was established by the CARES Act and allows dental providers to apply for payments made for health care-related expenses or lost revenue attributable to the pandemic.
HHS opened the portal Oct. 5 and the deadline to apply is Nov. 6. Dentists are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

The ADA has an FAQ to assist dentists in applying.
HHS has also posted a step-by-step guide on its website.
