Phase 4 Payment Reconsideration
Unhappy with the phase-4 payment received by your practice? HRSA issued guidance on how to file for a payment reconsideration at https://www.hrsa.gov/provider-relief/payment-reconsideration:
The PRF Reconsideration Process is intended for providers who believe their payment was not calculated correctly.
- Providers will not have an opportunity to submit an application if they missed a deadline.
- Providers will not be able to revise or correct their original application (e.g., elect to be considered for ARP Rural payment after their Phase 4/ARP Rural application was submitted).
- HRSA will not consider reconsideration requests that would require a change to payment methodology or policy.
The reconsideration window for ARP Rural and Phase 4 payments will open on February 1, 2022. Providers will be able to request reconsideration of their ARP Rural and/or Phase 4 payments. Details regarding the application process will be provided on this website by February 1, 2022. At a minimum, providers will need to provide in their reconsideration application information confirming their eligibility for ARP Rural and/or Phase 4 payment reconsideration, as well as information necessary to enable HRSA to link the reconsideration request with the original ARP Rural and Phase 4 application. This information is expected to include: a copy of the email or letter the provider received from HRSA communicating the ARP Rural and/or Phase 4 payment determination the provider would like HRSA to reconsider, as well as the taxpayer identification number, DocuSign envelope ID for the ARP Rural/Phase 4 application, and contact information from the original application.
