Extensions: Will HRSA allow late report submissions?

Will HRSA allow late report submissions?

In general, HRSA will not accept late report submissions after the applicable deadline associated with the Payment Received Period. There are two instances where HRSA has provided flexibility for providers. 

In light of the challenges that providers across the country faced due to natural disasters and the Delta variant, HRSA authorized a 60-day grace period for the first reporting period only, in order to help providers adhere to their Provider Relief Fund reporting requirements, for those that failed to meet the September 30, 2021 reporting deadline. This grace period ended on November 30, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).

HRSA will also provide an opportunity based on extenuating circumstances for Reporting Entities to complete reports and come into compliance in order to retain the funds received during the applicable Payment Received Period. Extenuating circumstances may include, but are not limited to, natural disasters, death or serious illness of the individual(s) responsible for reporting, or not receiving HRSA reporting notifications. This opportunity will be available for all reporting periods. Providers should monitor their email and the Provider Relief Fund webpage for additional information on the process for late report submission due to extenuating circumstances. Reporting entities must follow the stated process to request the opportunity. HRSA will review the requests for late report submissions due to an extenuating circumstance. If the late submission is approved, the provider must complete the report within the specified timeframe.

Providers who do not submit reports by the applicable deadline for the relevant reporting period, or are granted additional reporting time due to an extenuating circumstance and do not submit as instructed, will be considered out of compliance with program Terms and Conditions. Providers that are out of compliance with the Terms and Conditions must return Provider Relief Fund payments associated with the missed Reporting Time Period.
