Providers who received aggregate Provider Relief Fund (PRF) payments exceeding $10,000 from July 1, 2020 to Dec. 31, 2020 must report on their use of funds during “Reporting Period 2.” The reporting portal for Reporting Period 2 is open Jan. 1 through March 31.

A technical assistance webinar for returning reporting entities on Jan. 13 at 3 p.m. ET. Providers must register to attend.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act and subsequent laws included $178 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. The American Rescue Plan Act provided $8.5 billion to reimburse rural health care providers for health care-related expenses and lost revenues attributable to COVID–19.
