HHS delays release of Provider Relief Fund data collection instructions

The Department of Health and Human Services delayed today’s expected release of additional details regarding data elements for providers who accepted Provider Relief Fund program funds.

HHS in July said the instructions and templates for those who received one or more payments for more than $10,000 would be available Aug. 17. However, a notice from HHS said providers should still receive detailed instructions and a data template well before the reporting system’s Oct. 1 availability.

AHA recommends that providers continue checking the Provider Relief Fund website for updates.
