Sixty day grace period announced for Provider Relief Funds’ Period 1 reporting deadline

The September 30, 2021 Reporting Period 1 deadline for Provider Relief Fund (PRF) recipients has not changed; however, in response to challenges providers are facing given the COVID-19 surges and natural disasters around the country, a 60-day grace period is in place. This period allows providers to come into compliance with their PRF reporting requirements should they fail to meet the September 30, 2021 deadline.

Important details to note:

  • While providers will be out of compliance if they do not submit their report by September 30, 2021, recoupment or other enforcement actions will not be initiated during the 60-day grace period (October 1 – November 30, 2021).
  • Providers who are able are strongly encouraged to complete their report in the PRF Reporting Portal by September 30, 2021.
  • Providers should return unused funds as soon as possible after submitting their report. All unused funds must be returned no later than 30 days after the end of the grace period (December 30, 2021).
