    On March 28, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a nationwide expansion of the Medicare Accelerated and Advance Payment Program (AAP), making the program available for most Medicare physicians and group practices. The AAP is an expanded version of the Periodic Interim Payment program that has existed for hospitals. The program is intended to provide necessary funds when there is a disruption in claims submission and/or claims processing.

    CMS suspended applications for the AAP, so there is no current process to access loans via this program. However, recoupment of previously issued loans is due to begin in April 2021.
