Don’t Miss Your Opportunity to Challenge Provider Relief Fund (PRF) Payments

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recently closed Phase Four of the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) payments to health care providers. Now providers are dealing with both reporting requirements and the last opportunity to review what they have received and request reconsideration of the amount or not being paid.

HRSA has added a fifth PRF reporting period, which became necessary because many Phase Four payments were made in 2022, and the original reporting timeline ended at the end of 2021. Funds received in 2022 will have their use reported by Sept. 30, 2023. The next reporting deadline is Sept. 30, covering funds received in the first half of 2021.

Providers who do not believe their Phase Four PRF payment was calculated correctly can review how those were determined and submit a reconsideration. Providers denied funding in Phase Four because they were not verified as a known provider can appeal that determination. The PRF FAQ provides information on that, and many of the reporting questions providers will be dealing with over the next several months.
