HHS Delays Provider Relief Fund Reporting Deadline and Issues Updated Post-Payment Reporting Requirements

Delay in First Reporting Deadline

On January 15, 2021, HHS opened their portal for Provider Relief Fund (“PRF”) reporting registration only and extended the first reporting deadline of February 15th. While HHS has not announced the new reporting deadline, we advise all recipients of PRF funds to register on the Reporting Portal in order to receive e-mail updates from HHS. These updates will alert you when you can begin the online reporting process and also the updated deadline to file for the first reporting period.

Updated Post-Payment Reporting Requirements

On January 15th, HHS also announced new HHS Guidance for post-payment reporting. Similar to HHS’s previously issued post-payment reporting guidance issued on November 2, 2020, the new guidance provides updated instructions on the reporting for the use of funds. If you have not done so already, we recommend that you start gathering the required information that will be required as part of your submission.
