The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Provider Relief Fund (PRF) reporting portal is now open for providers who need to report on the use of funds in Reporting Period 1. All recipients of PRF payments must comply with the reporting requirements described in the Terms and Conditions.
Providers who received one or more payments exceeding $10,000, in the aggregate, during a “payment received period” are required to report in each applicable “reporting time period.” The current reporting time period is for payments exceeding $10,000 received between April 10, 2020, and June 30, 2020. Providers who are required to report during this first reporting period have until September 30, 2021, to do so.
Physicians should be aware that HHS recently updated its reporting requirements. Physicians are encouraged to review the updated reporting requirements notice (June 11).
More information, including reporting user guides, a data entry worksheet, frequently asked questions, and more can found on the PRF web page.
Practices that need assistance can call the PRF Provider Support Line at (866) 569-3522 between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.
