During the summer of 2020, most of our dental practice clients received the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) Phase 2 Subsidy equal to 2% of their 2019 net collections. Many practices also received Phase 3 PRF subsidies during December 2020. HRSA requires that any practice that received PRF Grants totaling more than $10k between 7/1/20 and 12/31/20 must self-report by March 31st that those funds were utilized properly. More info is available at: https://www.hrsa.gov/provider-relief/reporting-auditing.
Please be aware that practices that don’t comply with the March 31st self-reporting deadline are at risk of forfeiting the PRF subsides received between 7/1/20 and 12/31/20. We know this because healthcare practices participating in the Medicare System automatically received a Phase 1 PRF Subsidy in early April of 2020 and needed to self-report that the funds were used correctly by 9/30/21. HRSA shut off the self-reporting portal on 9/30, reopened it briefly after that, and has since threatened that they will be requesting full refunds of the Phase 1 amounts for non-compliant practices.
Last week we started reaching out to our clients who need to self-report by 3/31/22. If you would like our assistance to comply with this requirement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our fee to assist our clients who use our payroll service with the self-reporting application is $750.
