HHS updates guidance on Provider Relief Fund reporting

WASHINGTON – The Department of Health and Human Services last week updated guidance on Provider Relief Fund reporting, including that the PRF Reporting Portal will be open for providers to submit information on July 1.

Other key updates in the revised “Post-Payment Notice of Reporting Requirements,” according to VGM Government Relations: 

  • The period of availability of funds is based on the date the payment is received. Previous guidance indicated that all payments be used by June 30, 2021, regardless of when they were received. 
  • Recipients are required to submit a 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). 
  • 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.  

VGM says updated guidance also includes helpful tables detailing the deadline to use the funds, the deadline to report on the use of the funds, and the timing of payment received date and corresponding reporting time period.
