HHS Announces Provider Relief Fund Reporting Requirements

For CFOs, finance & reimbursement staff, government relations staff

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has issued detailed reporting requirements for recipients of more than $10,000 in Provider Relief Funds for health care-related expenses or lost revenues attributable to COVID-19.

The reporting requirements apply to all distributions except nursing home infection control, rural health clinic testing, and payments under the Health Resources and Services Administration COVID-19 Uninsured Program. Notably, while the department announced in Aug. 14 guidance that reporting would begin Oct. 1, it now states the reporting system will not be available until early 2021.
