Health systems improve access to behavioral healthcare despite provider shortage

The impacts of COVID-19 on behavioral health organizations: navigating the CARES Act, Provider Relief Fund audits and establishing a path forward

Behavioral health organizations have been heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and are being left with many questions. However, for organizations that have taken advantage of the multiple opportunities in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the questions that have surfaced make the future seem even more uncertain now that the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced that the Provider Relief Funds from the CARES Act will be subject to single audit requirements.

Listen to Baker Tilly’s informative discussion about how behavioral health organizations have been impacted by COVID-19, including:

  • An overview of the CARES Act, including the Payment Protection Program (PPP)
  • An overview of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Provider Relief Fund, including compliance and reporting requirements
  • How organizations can navigate through the coronavirus pandemic and beyond
