Keep Your Provider Relief Money, New HHS Forgiveness Rules Key

Length: 60 Minutes Expert: Amanda Waesch, Esq.

IMPORTANT: Failure to report or demonstrate proper use of the HHS pandemic Provider Relief Funds (Phase 1, 2, or 3) may result in you having to pay all of the money back. It is essential that you know your mandatory reporting obligations regarding the use of these funds to qualify for forgiveness.

There is one problem, the final HHS Provider Relief fund changes have not yet been fully released, which makes complying a significant problem. However, there are several essential items you should be doing right now to better prepare yourself for when the formal reporting begins.

Bottom line, whether you keep 100% of your HHS funds or have to pay the money back, still depends on YOU.

Healthcare employment law attorney, Amanda L. Waesch, Esq., can help. During her online training session, she will provide you with step-by-step guidance on the reporting rules that have been released and walk you through exactly what you can do right now to accurately report the use of your funds. Amanda will walk you through how best to determine your allowable expenses to help ensure you qualify for full forgiveness.

Here are just a few of the HHS Relief Fund reporting portal questions you’ll get answered during this 60-minute online training:

  • What is the most up-to-date definition of lost revenue and how do you calculate it?
  • What dates can you use for your loss of revenue reporting?
  • How do you register for the reporting portal and is there a deadline?
  • Where can you access worksheets to assist with HHS PRF reporting?
  • How do you find out if you received money from the general or targeted fund?
  • What specific expenses count as operating expenses from patient care?
  • What are the “tiers of reporting” and how will they affect my data?
  • What is the best way to track your PRF funds and what documentation do you need to retain?
  • How can you prepare for the expected HHS audits right now?
  • Can you use HHS funds for payroll, rent, and utilities after exhausting PPP funds for qualified expenses?
  • Could you have to pay back money because of HHS requirement changes since the initial program rollout?
  • And much more!

IMPORTANT: To ensure you get every piece of information you need to comply with HHS Provider Relief Fund reporting requirements, in addition to this training, you’ll also be registered for a second complimentary training once the final requirements are released. Our expert will contact us once the final reporting rules are announced to schedule a date for that follow-up training.

The HHS funding guidelines get more confusing with every update (which are continual). Also, HHS has a three-year window to look back and audit your practice for the use of these funds. You really can’t afford to miss out on these top reporting strategies related to your HHS Provider Relief Funds. Without this information, you risk having to pay back all of the HHS money you’ve received and could have to deal with an audit (with associated penalties).

By attending this session, Amanda will help you better prepare your HHS Provider Relief fund reporting (i.e. including missing requirements for not optimally using the money) and stop your practice from facing the financial nightmare of having to pay back the HHS Provider Relief money you’ve received. This attorney-led online training will provide you with step-by-step guidance on how to maintain accurate documentation and accurately report your usage of the funds to improve your forgiveness outcome.
