HHS Releases PRF Reporting Guidance

On September 21, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released new information regarding reporting requirements for recipients of funds from the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund as well as additional information related to potential future audits.   

This update provides guidance for our sector that CARES Act funds can be used to make up for lost revenue up to 2019 net operating income levels. AHCA/NCAL has worked with HHS to advocate for an updated definition of revenue, which is a significant improvement over a preliminary set of reporting guidance shared with stakeholders in August. We continue to work with HHS on these issues.  READ MORE.
