"It literally gives these hospitals a financial incentive to diagnose people with C19 and then treat them with protocols that don’t work." - Brian Cates
State-by-state breakdown of federal aid per COVID-19 case
Tuesday, April 14th, 2020
HHS recently began distributing the first $30 billion of emergency funding designated for hospitals in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
Some of the states hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic will receive less funding than states touched relatively lightly, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.
The first round of grants will be distributed based on historical share Medicare revenue, not based on COVID-19 burden. Therefore, hard-hit states like New York will receive far less per COVID-19 case than most other states.
