IMPORTANT UPDATE: HHS Provider Relief Fund Reporting Requirements

HHS has revised the Post-Payment Notice of Reporting Requirements - PDF as of today, June 11, 2021.

 ** Please note, the link to the PDF document has been intermittenly working. You can also click here for additional information. 

This new version supersedes all previous versions of the Post-Payment Notice of Reporting Requirements documents. More detailed information and additional resources will be forthcoming, but some of the key updates include:

  • 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 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.
  • The PRF Reporting Portal will open for providers to start submitting information on July 1, 2021

The guidance document 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. See example below.
