Revised Notice of Reporting Requirements and Reporting Timeline for Recipients of Provider Relief Fund Payments

HHS has revised the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) Post-Payment Notice of Reporting Requirements that was issued on January 15, 2021. The new reporting requirements are now available on HHS’ website along with other reporting resources. Review the revised notice for detailed information. A summary of key updates are listed below:

  • The period of availability of funds is based on the date the payment is received (rather than requiring all payments be used by June 30, 2021, regardless of when they were received).
  • Recipients are required to report for each Payment Received Period in which they received one or more payments exceeding, in the aggregate, $10,000 (rather than $10,000 cumulatively across all PRF payments).
  • Recipients will have a 90-day period to complete reporting (rather than a 30-day reporting period).
  • The reporting requirements are now applicable to recipients of the Skilled Nursing Facility and Nursing Home Infection Control Distribution in addition to General and other Targeted Distributions.
  • The PRF Reporting Portal will open for providers to start submitting information on July 1, 2021.
