HHS says Provider Relief Funds cannot be used for repaying CMS’s advanced and accelerated payments

The Department of Health and Human Services Oct. 9 published an FAQ saying that providers cannot use COVID-19 Provider Relief Fund distributions to repay payments made under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Accelerated and Advance Payment programs.

Earlier that week in a press release announcing new repayment terms for payments received under its Accelerated and Advance Payment programs, CMS incorrectly stated that providers could use PRF funds to repay the Medicare loans.

The CMS press release has since been updated to reflect the correction; you may need to refresh your browser to see the revised press release.
