A critical element of any effective compliance program is monitoring. As a service to our members, each month this column focuses on potential monitors for specific business lines or functions.
As we focus on getting COVID-19 vaccinations across the country, providers must be aware of the financial obligations caused by COVID-19. Compliance professionals should monitor their organizations in relation to the Provider Relief Fund (PRF), administered by the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). Many providers received payments from the HHS under the PRF as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
