Grace Period for Initial Provider Relief Funds Reporting Ends November 30
Providers who received one or more Provider Relief Fund (PRF) payments exceeding $10,000, in the aggregate, during the first Payment Received Period were required to report on their use of funds by September 30, 2021. HHS is currently observing a 60-day grace period to help providers who failed to meet the Reporting Period 1 deadline so they may come into compliance. The PRF Reporting Portal will close on November 30, 2021 at 11:59 pm ET and any non-compliant providers who fail to submit a completed report may be subject to further enforcement actions such as repayment or other debt collection activities.
In order to submit reports, providers must register in the PRF Reporting Portal. Providers should allow several days for registration validation to be completed. Technical assistance resources are listed on the PRF Reporting webpage (e.g., updated FAQs, user guides, and more). Real-time assistance is available by calling the Provider Support Line at 866-569-3522; for TTY dial 711. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday.
More information on the reporting requirements is available in our previous Fiscal Watch Article. (Andrew Busz, AndrewB@wsha.org)
