The Department of Health and Human Services today released updated FAQs related to payments from the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund.

Among other areas, the updated FAQs specify that HHS generally does not intend to recoup any funds, or so-called "overpayments" as long as a provider’s lost revenue and increased expenses exceed the amount of funding received; discuss the definition of individuals with possible or actual cases of COVID-19; and cover the terms and conditions of the fund, including oversight and enforcement mechanisms HHS will use, balance billing, reporting requirements and rejecting payments.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act and Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act included $175 billion in the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund to reimburse health care providers for health care-related expenses or lost revenues not otherwise reimbursed that are attributable to COVID-19.
