HFMA Comments on CARES Act Provider Relief Fund Reporting Requirements

HFMA submitted a comment letter to HHS identifying key questions related to the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund reporting requirements released on September 19. HFMA expresses its concern that the reporting requirements conflict with the prior FAQs issued by HHS and do not provide sufficient detail to PRF recipients so that they can ensure they are reporting their expenses and lost revenue attributed to the coronavirus accurately. Furthermore, the requirements deviate from the initial intent of supporting American families, workers and the heroic healthcare providers in the battle against the COVID19 outbreak.
