U.S. Senator Roy Blunt sent Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar a letter urging reconsideration of the agency’s new standards for using and repaying COVID-19 Provider Relief Funds. Many hospitals express frustration with the accounting, auditing, bond rating and planning implications of the agency’s abrupt and unconventional revisions of its June standards. Accordingly, MHA opposes the new guidance and has actively lobbied for returning to the June standards. We appreciate Sen. Blunt’s positive and forceful response.
