HHS has updated its Provider Relief Fund (PRF) FAQs again, offering the following guidance for providers whose total payments from the distributions under this fund exceed the 2 percent of total patient revenue for the tax year submitted. Specifically:
If HHS identifies a payment made in error, HHS will recoup the erroneous amount. If a provider receives a payment that is greater than expected and believes the payment was made in error, the provider should contact the Provider Support Line at 866-569-3522 (for TYY, dial 711) and seek clarification.
As a reminder, APMA hosted a webinar last month to help members with auditing and reporting requirements related to the PRF, “Provider Relief Fund Reporting & Auditing—What You Need to Know.”
If you received $10,000 or more of PRF funds (in aggregate, not counting Uninsured Funding), you are required to report for these funds. If you expended $750,000 or more in aggregate federal assistance (including funds from the Paycheck Protection Program, the PRF, and Uninsured Funding, you will have to participate in the auditing process.
