COVID-19 Practice Management Resources

This toolkit is intended to help practices now and in the coming weeks make adjustments due to COVID-19.  Any new clinical guidance for physicians will be posted on ACP’s COVID-19 resource page.

What's New

Updated 1/8/2021
  • The PHE declaration has been renewed for another 90 days effective 1/21/2021. 
  • The COVID Omnibus law (HR 133) passed on December 21, 2020, expanded the allowable and forgivable expenses for the Paycheck Protection Program, including some IT related expenses and PPE.  The rule also simplifies the application process for loans <$150,000 and includes money for EIDL grants in low income communities.  More details can be found here. As more guidance becomes available, check back here.
  • On December 16, HHS began distributing Phase 3 Provider Relief Funds.  See the announcement.  For more information about the Phase 3 distribution go here.
