Start Now: Provider Relief Fund Reporting Period 2 Deadline March 31

The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Provider Relief Fund (PRF) Reporting Portal is open for providers who need to report the use of PRF funds in Reporting Period 2 (RP2).

The deadline for RP2 is March 31, 2022. AHCA/NCAL urges members to finish RP2s before the quickly approaching deadline. The HRSA reporting website experienced technical difficulties at the end of Reporting Period 1 and shut down.

Providers who fail to submit a completed report by the deadline will be subject to further enforcement actions, such as repayment or exclusion from receiving and/or retaining future PRF payments. For more details, review the Reporting Non-Compliance Fact Sheet.

IMPORTANT NOTEGrace periods or extensions will not be granted in RP2. HRSA encourages providers to complete their RP2 early as not to miss the deadline. Should you need to make modifications to the RP2 after submitting the file, please contact HRSA’s Provider Support Line for assistance.

Who needs to file in Reporting Period 2?

Providers who received PRF payments exceeding $10,000 in the aggregate between July 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020 are required to report in RP2 and must submit a report on use of funds by March 31, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET or they will be required to return all funds to be compliant with RP2.

Next Steps

  1. Providers should register on the PRF Reporting Portal. Providers who registered during Reporting Period 1 do not need to register again and may log into the portal with their username, TIN, and password.
  2. Complete all required fields in the Portal and submit a report on use of funds by the March 31, 2022 deadline.

After submitting a report, providers must return any unused funds within 30 days after the end of RP2. For more information on returning all or a portion of payments via ACH or check, visit the PRF Reporting Portal or refer to the Returning Funds Fact Sheet for more details and instructions on returning funds to HRSA.
