180 Medical, a leading nationwide supplier of chronic care medical supplies to the home, is announcing that it is returning the $10 million of unsolicited relief funds from the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) Provider Relief Fund.
180 Medical Returns CARES Act Relief Funds
Because the CARES Act was intended to help businesses that require assistance as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, 180 Medical believes the funding could better serve others in need.
With a previously well-tested disaster recovery and remote work program, 180 Medical acted quickly and early in the face of the oncoming pandemic and moved 90% of its workforce to a home-based program. The warehouse teams were outfitted with personal protective equipment (PPE) and implemented robust safety protocols to minimize risk and maximize on-time, secure delivery of the essential medical supplies on which our customers rely in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The CARES Act national relief package, signed into law on March 27th, 2020, was created to provide economic assistance for hospitals and other healthcare providers on the front lines of the coronavirus response. The funding is to support healthcare-related expenses or lost revenue attributable to COVID-19 and to ensure uninsured Americans can get testing and treatment for COVID-19.
180 Medical remains fully dedicated to providing the best in medical supplies along with compassionate customer service while living our core values of improving care and doing what is right and always operating with the highest standards of integrity.
