Anyone figured out how to apply yet?


I don’t see that the portal is open yet. The email from the AAP states that a new portal will open 6/10 to apply, but I have yet to see anything new.

We got paid during the second general fund round and were certainly glad to get it, but I sure wonder if we had waited on this round would we have received a larger amount of funds. Oh well… Good luck to everyone and I hope the application process runs smoothly and the funds come without any hiccups!

The second general fund round was also supposed to be 2% of your total receipts - i.e. the same as you’d get via this round.


thanks for the info. that is what I was thinking. I saw a mention of adjustment based on the amounts of Medicaid a practice sees, but we are kind of average, so, yes I think the 2% calculation is where a practice like ours would land.
