CMS announced on April 26 its decision to reevaluate the amounts that will be paid under the Accelerated Payment Program and to suspend its Advance Payment Program to Part B suppliers.

The agency has already paid more than $100 billion to health-care providers and suppliers since these programs were expanded on March 28, 2020. CMS will not accept any new applications for the Advance Payment Program. It will review all pending and new applications for the Accelerated Payment Program in light of the direct payments being made available through HHS’ Provider Relief Fund.
