HRSA opens PRF reporting portal for second period

January 4, 2022

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has opened the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) Reporting Portal for providers to begin submitting their second period reports. These reports will cover PRF payments received July 1 – Dec. 31, 2020. The deadline to submit the second period report is March 31, 2022. Members should take their time and review the newly available resources including two webinars prior to submitting their reports.

This will be the first time reporting for assisted living, private pay nursing homes, and Medicaid providers like HCBS who didn’t receive their first PRF payments until Phase 2 or 3. For nursing homes, this will be the first report where they are required to report on the infection control expenses they covered with the Nursing Home Infection Control distributions and related quality incentive payments. HRSA will host a webinar on Jan. 12 at 3 p.m. for providers new to the reporting process, and a second webinar on Jan. 13 at 3 p.m. for providers who have prior experience reporting. There are some new features in the reporting portal so even experienced providers will likely benefit from attending.

Providers must register to attend the free technical assistance webinars, and can submit questions about the reporting process during registration.

Updated reporting resources and details, including information on registering for the webinars, can be found here. LeadingAge will provide highlights of resources and webinars, and FAQs related to the second reporting period leading up to the March 31 submission deadline.
