(Recorded Webinar) Here We Go Again! Provider Relief Fund: Updated Reporting and Use Requirements

Duration: 90 minutes
Recorded on: 7/26/2021

As many health care organizations know first-hand, confusion has reigned on proper use of the Provider Relief Fund (“PRF”).  In mid-June, HRSA issued new reporting requirements and FAQs, and on July 1, the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) reporting portal opened.  Among the significant changes were:

  1. Period of Availability of Funds is now based on the date PRF payments were received
  2. An extension of the period availability, but only for PRF payments made after July 1, 2020; earlier payments must still be used prior to June 30, 2021
  3. 90-day reporting period, so for payments prior to July 1, 2020, reports must be submitted by September 30, 2021
  4. Clarification on the definition of “lost revenue” (a favorable one this time)
  5. Confusing language on the use of federal grant funds and offsetting “patient care” revenue

During this webinar, presenters from FTLF and accounting firm CohnReznick will discuss potential PRF compliance strategies, Single Audit requirements, and much more.  Additionally, up-to-date information on reporting and use requirements, along with clarifications of the latest HRSA announcements, will be covered.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
