Committee leaders press HHS secretary on PRF
Doubling down on a HANYS-supported congressional letter sent earlier this week, Energy and Commerce Committee leaders and members called on HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra to extend the current June 30 deadline for providers to expend Provider Relief Fund money. Separately, members called for the protection of the 340B Drug Pricing Program.
During the HHS FFY 2022 budget hearing, Becerra acknowledged the need to support frontline providers, increase transparency in the PRF and ensure the remaining $25 billion be distributed to those in need. Contact: Elyse Oveson
