It’s tax season, and if you received payments in 2020 through certain federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act programs, be on the lookout for a tax form that includes information on those payments.
According to a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), you’ll receive a Form 1099 if you received more than $600 total from either or both of the Provider Relief Fund or the COVID-19 Claims Reimbursement to Health Care Providers and Facilities for Testing, Treatment and Vaccine Administration for the Uninsured.
These forms will be mailed by Jan. 31, HHS says. Physicians who have a previously established account with UnitedHealth Group and have elected to receive electronic copies of documents will not get a copy in the mail.
Meanwhile, HHS is currently considering applications for Phase 3 of the Provider Relief Fund after making $24.5 billion in funding available for that phase. If you have questions about the status of your Provider Relief Fund application, contact the support line at (866) 569-3522.
