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.

How to Report

Step 1: Register in the Provider Relief Fund Reporting Portal

A reporting Tax ID Number (TIN) submitting reports in multiple reporting periods will only need to register once. However, those new to the reporting process will need to complete this step.

Registration takes approximately 20 minutes and must be completed in a single session.

What information do I need to complete the registration process in the PRF Reporting Portal?

Information required to register is as follows:

  • Tax ID Number (TIN) [or other number submitted during the application process (e.g., Social Security Number (SSN), Employer Identification Number (EIN))]
  • Business name of the Reporting Entity (as it appears on IRS Form W-9)
  • Contact information (i.e., name, phone number, email) of the person responsible for submitting the report
  • Address (i.e., street, city, state, five-digit zip code) of the Reporting Entity as it appears on IRS Form W-9)
  • TIN(s) of subsidiaries (if a provider is reporting on behalf of subsidiary(ies) - in a list delimited by commas, e.g.,123456789,987654321,135791357)
  • Payment information (for any one of the PRF payments received)
    • TIN of entity that received the payment
    • Payment amount
    • Mode of payment (check or direct deposit ACH)
    • Check number or ACH settlement date

Reporting Entities will need to create a username (in the form of an email address) and a password during the registration process.
