HHS Announces Revised PRF Reporting Requirements

Following months of silence after the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) portal opened for registration in January, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has finally released revised reporting requirements and deadlines for recipients of more than $10,000 in PRF payments.

Highlights of the changes include:

  • Providers can begin submitting their reports on July 1, 2021.
  • Recipients must report for every period in which they received $10,000 or more in the aggregate.
  • Skilled nursing facilities are now subject to the PRF reporting requirements.
  • Deadlines to use and report funds are now based on the date payment was received, as follows:
