HHS Provides More Details on Provider Relief Fund Reporting

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released additional reporting requirements for healthcare organizations that received financial support under the CARES Act. The notice requires healthcare organizations that received more than $10,000 to submit reports detailing the use of the funds and compliance with payment terms and conditions. Providers must report on their expenditures through the end of the December. HHS states that more details about reporting requirements will be released August 17th. This announcement comes after months of questions from providers about how to use and report the funds they received; this includes Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) dollars. NRHA is working with rural health champions in the Administration and Congress to ensure that rural providers are not disadvantaged by these new requirements due to their unique payment structures.
