HHS Secretary Becerra addresses PRF, guidance forthcoming

During a House Ways and Means Committee hearing on the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) budget request, Secretary Xavier Becerra addressed the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) and told lawmakers that the Department would be releasing additional guidance this month. Physician practices still only have until June 30 to use any PRF money received. Last month, MGMA sent a letter to HHS recommending modifications to the PRF program, including an extension of the spending deadline and the expeditious distribution of the remaining relief funds to medical group practices and other providers.
