$40M to hospitals with COVID-19 losses is on the way

Wisconsin hospitals will direct payments from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) to assist with lost revenue and expenses they’ve incurred related to the COVID-19 pandemic in March, April, and May 2020, according to a release from the office of Gov. Tony Evers.

The payments are made possible through $40 million of federal funding provided to Wisconsin under the CARES Act.
