HHS Shares Details on Post-payment Reporting Requirements for Recipients of CARES Act Provider Relief Funds

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) this week shared additional information on reporting requirements for recipients of provider relief funds authorized under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act.

Specifically, HHS said recipients that received one or more payments exceeding $10,000 in the aggregate from the Provider Relief Fund will be required to submit reports to HHS on how the funds have been expended using a portal that HHS will open on Oct. 1, 2020. HHS said detailed instructions regarding these reports will be released by Aug. 17, 2020. The Health Resources and Services Administration, which is in charge of administering the distribution of the payments, will host educational sessions for providers. Last month, HHS clarified that it would not require quarterly reports. More details on the timing of the reports follows. 
 
Notice on Timing of Reports
 

HHS says the reporting system will become available to recipients for reporting on Oct. 1, 2020.

  • All recipients must report within 45 days of the end of calendar year 2020 (or no later than Feb. 15, 2021) on their expenditures through the period ending Dec. 31, 2020.
  • Recipients who have expended funds in full prior to Dec. 31, 2020 may submit a single final report at any time during the window that begins Oct. 1, 2020, but no later than Feb. 15, 2021.
  • Recipients with funds unexpended after Dec. 31, 2020, must submit a second and final report no later than July 31, 2021.
  • Detailed reporting instructions and a data collection template with the necessary data elements will be available through the HRSA website by Aug. 17, 2020.
