HHS has released additional details regarding the reporting requirements that recipients of the Provider Relief Fund will be expected to adhere to in order to comply with the Terms and Conditions of receiving the funds. Additional reporting details will be coming by August 17th, which should include a reporting template that providers can use, but here is what we know right now.

Providers who meet any of the following criteria will be required to report on the use of the funds they received:

  1. Received over $10,000 in the aggregate (total of all payments received)
  2. Received funding from any of the General Distribution categories, including:
    1. Initial Medicare Distribution (Round 1 - $30B – these payments were sent or deposited automatically, without request or application)
    2. Additional Medicare Distribution (Round 2 - $20B – application was required, and providers had to have received an automatic payment from Round 1 above)
    3. Medicaid, Dental & CHIP Distribution ($15B – application required, providers could not have received funds from Medicare Round 1 or Round 2 above)
