SB 809/Rider 143 COVID-19 Reporting

Last updated on 1/24/2022

The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is posting the list of health-care institutions who must submit reports in compliance with Senate Bill (SB) 809 or Rider 143. The list shows providers who haven’t submitted an SB 809/Rider 143 Report as well as those HHSC staff who are helping complete the report. The list can be found on the Provider Finance website under SB 809/Rider 143 COVID-19 Reporting Healthcare Institution List. This list was updated January 10 and covers January 2020 - October 2021.

HHSC has authority to pursue disciplinary actions for facilities that fail to report. The health and safety of those we serve is always our top priority.

SB 8, from the 2021 third special session of the Texas Legislature, authorizes grants to rural hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies, intermediate care facilities, and community attendants from the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recover Fund, established under the American Rescue Plan Act. We are required to prioritize grants to grantees who are compliant with the reporting requirements identified above. Failure to submit reports required by Senate Bill 809 or Rider 143 could limit the funding a provider may receive from the grants or disqualify them completely.

Providers must submit this form, which includes funding and cost data covering the period January 2020 through August 2021. Providers must also submit this monthly form every month. The reports are due one month after the reporting period ends. For example, the report for December 2021 data is due February 1.
