The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), released the revised reporting requirements for recipients of the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) payments. The newly issued June 11, 2021 reporting requirements can be found here.
Key updates include:
- 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 payments).
- Recipients will have a 90-day period to complete reporting (rather than a 30-day reporting period).
- The reporting requirements are now applicable to recipients of the Skilled Nursing Facility and Nursing Home Infection Control Distribution in addition to General and other Targeted Distributions.
- The Reporting Portal will open for providers to start submitting information on July 1, 2021.
The new reporting deadlines and use of funds deadlines are based on receipt date of each of the specific PRF dollars. Providers that did receive one or more payments during a Payment Received Period outlined below are required to report in the Reporting Time Period associated with the date in which they received payments that exceed $10,000 in aggregate.
