    Re: Upcoming Provider Relief Fund reporting deadline

    Dear Secretary Becerra,

    The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) appreciates the actions taken by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to implement programmatic changes to the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) on June 11, 2021. In particular, MGMA is pleased that HHS heeded our recommendations to allow medical groups more time to use PRF payments by establishing rolling deadlines and to extend the period during which recipients must report their use of funds. However, in considering the sharp increase in COVID-19 cases across the country coupled with the complex and arduous reporting requirements of the program, MGMA is concerned that many medical groups will struggle to complete reporting by the upcoming September 30, 2021 reporting deadline. MGMA respectfully requests that HHS extend the deadline for all PRF recipients to report their use of funds until at least March 31, 2023, regardless of when funds were originally received.
