This Spring, the Texas 87th Legislature passed S.B. 809, an Act adding Chapter 81A entitled “Coronavirus Disease Public Health Emergency Reporting” to the Texas Health and Safety Code. This Act requires “health care institutions” who received federal relief funds under the CARES Act, Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, or the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to report the amounts received to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. Providers are not required to report funds received under the SBA loan program or money returned to the federal government. The HHSC is required to submit these reports to the Governor and other Texas governmental officials. The Act requires HHSC the develop procedures for providers submit the required report. The law goes into effect September 1, 2021, and as of July 30, 2021, HHSC has yet to publish procedures or a deadline for submitting the report. Learn more: Texas SB00809F
