The Provider Relief Fund Reporting Portal was recently updated to reflect a notification from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services that the Reporting Portal will be reopened for the completion or submission of reports for Reporting Period 1 from 9:00 am on December 13, 2021 to 11:59 pm on December 20, 2021. The message provides that providers who need to correct errors must contact the Provider Support Line (866-569-3522) to gain access to their report, and that any resubmitted reports must also be received by 11:59 pm on December 20, 2021.

Although providers who failed to submit their reports by the previous deadlines may still face penalties for non-compliance, this news presents a great opportunity to allow such providers to file their reports and potentially avoid greater penalties. Providers should additionally be aware that Reporting Period 2 will begin on January 1, 2022.
