Deadline extended for Provider Relief Fund reporting
A hot topic brought to you by SpecialtyRx, your partner in long-term care
Healthcare providers who received in excess of $10,000 in Provider Relief Fund payments are required to report how they utilized the aid. The Department of Health and Human Services just extended the reporting deadline.
The HHS Reporting Portal was slated to open on January 15th with the initial deadline for submissions scheduled for February 15th. The date has been extended due in part to Congress passing the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act late last month, adding an additional $3 billion to the Provider Relief Fund. HHS is working on revising the PRF reporting requirements so they are in line with the new law but have yet to announce a new deadline.
“In the interim, however, starting today, HHS is encouraging all PRF recipients that have received aggregate PRF payments that exceed $10,000 to establish a reporting account by registering at the newly enabled PRF reporting website.
While there is currently no deadline for providers to establish a reporting account in the newly enabled Reporting Portal, all providers will be required to complete this first step in order to advance and fulfill their reporting requirements once HHS announces the new deadline to do so,” the agency stated.
They also stated that the reporting requirements released today do not apply to funds from: Nursing Home Infection Control, Rural Health Clinics Testing, and COVID-19 Claims Reimbursement to Health Care Providers and Facilities for Testing, Treatment and Vaccine Administration for the Uninsured recipients.
