Expanded Provider Relief Fund Eligibility and Updated Reporting Requirements

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expanded the types of providers that are eligible for Phase 3 Provider Relief Funds (PRF) to include residential treatment facilities, physician assistants, and advanced practice nursing providers, among others.  Providers may submit applications until November 6.  HHS also updated the reporting requirements and auditing instructions in response to stakeholder feedback.  This new guidance now allows providers to apply PRF payments against all lost revenues without limitation.
