Are you stretched trying to balance operational issues and keep up with all of the ever-changing CARES Act regulations and guidance? Have you identified all of the COVID-related expenses and evaluated lost revenues for your organization?
As a leader on the front lines of a healthcare organization, you are experiencing the impact the coronavirus pandemic has on your operations. Identifying and tracking this impact is crucial to your organization, its current funding, and potential future allocations. It is important to capture the amounts for increased supply costs and shortages, lost revenues from elective procedures, suspended surgeries, and outpatient services, costs incurred for space renovations and telehealth expenses, and other amounts associated with the coronavirus pandemic. There are constantly changing governmental funding programs, regulations, and reporting requirements to research and respond to in a timely manner. In addition, the CARES Act funds have been added to governmental audit plans and will be subject to review and inspection.
For providers that received more than $10,000 in Provider Relief Funds, a report of expenditures for the period ending December 31, 2020 will be due, but an updated deadline has not yet been released. Recipients with unexpended funds on December 31, 2020 must submit second and final report no later than July 31, 2021. For more details, click here.
