Member Call with Hospital CEOs

On today's call with hospital-member CEOs, GHA staff shared updates and slides on Provider Relief Fund reporting requirements as dictated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). GHA voiced hospitals' concerns regarding HHS' new definition of 'lost revenue' with the American Hospital Association (AHA). AHA has urged HHS to reinstate the COVID-19 Provider Relief Fund reporting requirements outlined in its June 19 FAQ that defined both expenses and lost revenues attributable to COVID-19. Specifically, AHA said the June requirements, which stated that lost revenue was “any revenue that … a health care provider lost due to coronavirus,” should replace those outlined in HHS’s Sept. 19 notice. If your hospital has examples of how this change is negatively impacting your organization, please share with GHA by emailing covid19@gha.org.
