Montana Health Care Providers to Receive Nearly $12 Million in Pandemic Relief, Tester Announces

162 providers in Montana will receive a combined $ 11,916,997

U.S. Senator Jon Tester today announced that Montana health care providers will receive nearly $12 million in pandemic relief funds.

162 providers across the state will share a combined $11,916,997 under the phase 3 general distribution of the Provider Relief Funding program Tester secured as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

“Montana’s health care providers have been bravely responding to this pandemic for months, and need every available resource,” Tester said. “This funding will help providers keep their doors open and continue treating patients while keeping Montana families and communities healthy.”

The funding is administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and distribution began today.

Tester has fought tirelessly to ensure Montana’s health care providers have the resources they need to combat the coronavirus pandemic. He secured nearly $200 million for rural health care providers and clinics, and recently secured $3 million for 14 Montana community health centers to expand COVID-19 testing.
