Curi today presented a webinar entitled, “Getting It Right: Using and Reporting on Provider Relief Fund Grants.” The session, led by healthcare attorney Robert Shaw of the firm Smith Anderson, was designed to help practices learn what they need to know to accurately report to HHS on how they have spent these funds, which can be used to compensate for lost revenue due to the pandemic. A recording of the webinar and a copy of the presentation are available on Curi’s COVID-19 Practice Command Center, here.
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
