How much federal COVID-19 aid are safety-net hospitals getting? A state-by-state analysis

HHS is distributing another $35 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act's provider relief fund, $10 billion of which is going to safety-net hospitals. 

HHS provided details on the most recent disbursement from the provider relief fund in a June 9 release. To qualify for a slice of the funding, safety-net hospitals must have average uncompensated care per bed of at least $25,000, profitability of 3 percent or less and a Medicare Disproportionate Payment Percentage of 20.2 percent or greater. 

HHS said each safety-net hospital that qualifies for relief aid will receive between $5 million and $50 million.

HHS combined the totals in three cases: District of Columbia, Delaware and Maryland; North Dakota and South Dakota; and Vermont and New Hampshire.
