CHA is reminding members of upcoming deadlines for the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Rural Fund and Provider Relief Fund (PRF) Reporting Period 4.  

Phase 4 PRF/ARP Rural Funds Reconsideration Process Deadline: Hospitals that believe their Phase 4 PRF or ARP Rural Fund were inaccurately calculated have until 8:59 p.m. (PT) on Feb. 21 to submit a request for payment consideration. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will only consider reconsideration requests from providers who believe their Phase 4/ARP Rural Fund payment calculation was incorrect.
