In June, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revised the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) Post-Payment Notice of Reporting Requirements that was originally issued on January 15, 2021. On July 1st, HHS opened their portal for recipients of the Provider Relief Funds stimulus payment. Below is a summary of key updates and action items worth noting:


  • Recipients of the PRF 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 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 opened for providers to start submitting information on July 1, 2021
