Last week, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announced that it would reopen the reporting portal for recipients of Period 1 Provider Relief Funds. Between Monday, April 11, and Friday, April 22, at 11:59 pm (ET), providers who have not submitted their Period 1 report will be able to submit a late report. To submit a late report, providers must choose an extenuating circumstance that prevented compliance with the original reporting deadline.
Allowable Extenuating Circumstances:
- Severe illness or death – a severe medical condition or death of a provider or key staff member responsible for reporting hindered the organization’s ability to complete the report during the Reporting Period.
- Impacted by natural disaster – a natural disaster occurred during or in close proximity of the end of the Reporting Period damaging the organization’s records or information technology.
- Lack of receipt of reporting communications – an incorrect email or mailing address on file with HRSA prevented the organization from receiving instructions prior to the Reporting Period deadline.
- Failure to click “Submit” – the organization registered and prepared a report in the PRF Reporting Portal, but failed to take the final step to click “Submit” prior to deadline.
- Internal miscommunication or error – internal miscommunication or error regarding the individual who was authorized and expected to submit the report on behalf of the organization and/or the registered point of contact in the PRF Reporting Portal.
- Incomplete Targeted Distribution payments – the organization’s parent entity completed all General Distribution payments, but a Targeted Distribution(s) was not reported on by the subsidiary.
