NRHA Technical Assistance Center releases COVID-19 position

A significant amount of discussion on NRHA Connect, NRHA's internal social network for members, and within other organizations has focused on accounting and cost report treatment of various funding streams from COVID-19-related legislation.

NRHA's Technical Assistance Center recently authored a paper that outlines several related issues and suggests positions providers may consider or discussions they should have with their financial and reimbursement advisers. The positions of NRHA are not authoritative and should not be solely relied upon for financial or reimbursement reporting.

In addition, governmental agencies are frequently making new pronouncements, including but not limited to the Small Business Administration (SBA), U.S. Dept. of the Treasury, Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Providers should frequently monitor the agencies’ websites for the latest information.

NRHA staff is actively working with representatives from these agencies and members of Congress to clear confusion and resolve issues as they arise. NRHA will provide updates through social media and publications as new information is received.

See NRHA's press release for details on positions provided by the association's Technical Assistance Center.
