New Reporting Requirements for HHS Provider Relief Funding Webinar

Originally recorded October 14, 2020



One way of doing things, then another. 
On Jun. 14, HHS CARES Provider Relief Fund defined lost revenue as any revenue a provider lost due to COVID-19. That changed dramatically on Sept. 19 when HHS issued a new definition of lost revenue.

This new definition is especially problematic for hospitals and will impact planning and budgeting, accounting, auditing and bond ratings. This program will:

  • Clarify the new requirements
  • Explain impact on operations and accounting practices 
  • Demo a new data management workbook that explains the new requirements and helps hospitals prepare and comply with HHS 
  • Discuss Nov. 6 Phase 3 application deadline
