In 2020, Congress gave the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) $178 billion to distribute to healthcare providers to cover their qualifying expenses and lost revenues attributable to Coronavirus. Armed with little direction from Congress except a mandate to distribute relief funds as quickly as possible, HHS built the parameters of the Provider Relief Fund program in parallel with the distributions of funds. After a year of evolving rules, the new administration has made additional programmatic changes. Despite some delay, the reporting process is open effective July 1, and under a lens of significant scrutiny, recipients of Provider Relief Fund payments must now be prepared to disclose how they used the government’s money. In this webinar designed for healthcare providers, Sidley lawyers (with both outside counsel and inside HHS experience with the Provider Relief Fund) and KPMG professionals will:
- Provide an insider perspective on the evolution of the Provider Relief Fund
- Succinctly summarize the critical rules governing the reporting process
- Discuss action items for maintaining adequate supporting documentation (particularly in case of future audits)
- Address open questions for managing the Provider Relief Fund reporting process
- Conduct real-time audience polling that will give you valuable compliance benchmarking to navigate ambiguities in reporting
