The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has released revised reporting requirements for recipients of Provider Relief Fund payments.
The new requirements expand the amount of time providers will have to report information, reduces burdens on smaller providers and extends key deadlines for expending provider relief fund payments.
The revised reporting requirements will be applicable to providers who received payments exceeding $10,000 during a single “payment received period” from the general distributions, targeted distributions, and/or skilled nursing facility and nursing home infection control distributions.
The revised reporting requirements supplanting the January 15, 2021, requirements can be found here.
- The period of availability of funds is based on the date the payment is received (rather than requiring all payments be used by June 30, 2021, regardless of when they were received).
- Recipients are required to report for each “payment received period” in which they received one or more payments exceeding, in the aggregate, $10,000 (rather than $10,000 cumulatively across all PRF payments).
- Recipients will have a 90-day period to complete reporting (rather than a 30-day reporting period).
HHS also posted an update to its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document regarding the Provider Relief Fund that addresses these new requirements, as well as other issues.
