Program Update

With the passage of the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023 and related rescission of program funds, no further payments will be made to providers under the Provider Relief Fund or the American Rescue Plan Rural Distribution, including no reconsideration payments. Likewise, no additional claims payments will be made under the Uninsured Program or Coverage Assistance Fund. Per the Terms and Conditions of each Program, all reporting and auditing requirements will continue without disruption.


The Provider Relief Fund (PRF), administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), makes payments to qualified providers for health care-related expenses and lost revenues due to coronavirus. Retention and use of PRF payments are subject to certain Terms and Conditions, which were given to providers at the time of payment.

Providers are considered in compliance when the Terms and Conditions are accepted and met, through reporting requirements and potential audits that show the use of funds were for acceptable purposes. 

When the Terms and Conditions are not met, HHS reserves the right to administer penalties for non-compliance. Providers that are not in compliance may be subject to enforcement actions including repayment and debt collection. 

HRSA will officially notify all non-compliant providers, alerting them of their non-compliant status with instructions on how to remediate their status (if applicable).
