Phase 4 and Rural ARP Reconsideration Update
Toyon is pleased to provide this update on the CARES Provider Relief Fund (PRF). Please feel free to contact Fred Fisher at 888.514.9312, email@example.com with any questions.
Providers in receipt of CARES Phase 4 and/or rural payments from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) have until May 2, 2022 to request a payment reconsideration. The reconsideration process is available to any provider looking to correct potential errors in their Phase 4 and/or Rural ARP payment according to HRSA’s methodology. HRSA will only consider correction of any errors; and will not consider changes to its payment methodology or policy in the reconsideration process. To request a Phase 4 and/Rural ARP reconsideration, providers must:
1) Review HRSA’s methodology. Providers may also contact HRSA at 866.569.3522 (TTY dial 711) to receive additional information on how Phase 4/Rural ARP payments were determined.
2) Gather the following documents:
a. Payment determination letter from HRSA
b. DocuSign envelope ID for the ARP Rural/Phase 4 application
c. The contact information and Tax ID Number (TIN) included on the original Phase 4/ARP Rural application
d. The reason believed the Phase 4/Rural ARP payment was calculated incorrectly, (related to the PRF Phase 4 and ARP Rural Payment Methodology)
3) Complete and submit the PRF Reconsideration Request Form by 11:59:59 pm EST on May 2, 2022. HRSA states not to include any supplemental information or documentation beyond completing the PRF Reconsideration Request Form and uploading your Phase 4/ARP Rural payment determination letter. HRSA will only review your original submitted application and will request any clarifying information directly, as needed.
Providers expecting, but not yet in receipt of, CARES Phase 4 and/or Rural ARP payments will have 45 days to apply for reconsideration after receipt of a payment determination notice from HRSA. More information is available at HRSA’s PRF Reconsideration site as well as HRSA’s PRF Reconsideration FAQ site. Please also see Toyon’s updated CARES PRF Presentation (February 4) for information on recent CARES PRF allocations, Period 2 Reporting, and new FAQs issued January 27, 2022.
