A 30-day extension is available upon request, and for this first round of reporting providers may use their unaudited financial statements. Visit the AHCA FNHURS website for more information.
  • Fair Rental Value Survey (FRVS) Updates Must Be Completed - Providers who had capital expenditures over $500/bed/project for the prior year will want to update their FRVS reporting by the end of the month to ensure those expenditures are captured in the October 1, 2024, rate-setting period.
