New HHS Rule: Avoid Losing Your COVID-19 Emergency Relief Money

Length: 60 minutes Expert: Kristyn DeFilipp, Esq.

IMPORTANT: HHS recently released your reporting obligations related to the COVID-19 Provider Relief Fund money you accepted earlier this year. HHS Relief Fund Reporting.

 You may not have realized it, but the COVID-19 relief money you accepted from HHS earlier this year came with strings attached that you must adhere to. If you fail to comply, HHS could take back the money (even if you’ve already spent it).

It is essential that you know exactly when and how to report your usage of the HHS relief money you previously accepted. Luckily, there is a way for your practice to maximize the amount of relief money you get to keep …

… and healthcare attorney, Kristyn DeFillip, Esq, is going to tell you how. During Kristyn’s 60-minute online training, she’ll explain exactly how you can keep more of the COVID-19 Relief Fund money you’ve received. She’ll also help you avoid reporting errors that could leave you fending off costly and stressful fraud allegations.

Here are just a few of the critical strategies you can use to comply with these new HHS Relief Fund reporting requirements that will help you avoid having to pay back previously received emergency money:

  • Avoid missing critical deadlines by identifying which reporting dates apply to you
  • Define what counts as “lost revenue” to capture your maximum allowances
  • Pinpoint the right time period so your revenue method withstands scrutiny
  • Discover which COVID-related expenses you should, and shouldn’t, report
  • Accurately track, document, and report expenses to stop fraud accusations
  • And so much more…

Who Should Attend:  If your practice accepted HHS money from the COVID-19 Provider Relief Fund earlier this year, this training is for you (regardless of the amount of money your practice received).

You CAN control whether your practice is forced to repay the COVID-19 emergency money you were previously sent, and whether you are hit with government fraud allegations. This online training will walk you through how to comply with the new HHS reporting rules, avoid costly errors, and walk you through how to hang on to more of the relief money you received.

Things have been tough enough this year. You shouldn’t have to worry about losing the HHS relief money you previously received or making a reporting mistake and ending up in trouble.
