The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recently launched a COVID-19 Uninsured Program Portal where health care providers who have conducted COVID-19 testing of uninsured individuals for COVID-19 or provided treatment to uninsured individuals with a COVID-19 diagnosis on or after February 4, 2020 can request claims for reimbursement.

Providers will be reimbursed, generally at Medicare rates, subject to available funding. Steps will involve:

–          Enrolling as a provider participant

–          Checking patient eligibility

–          Submitting patient information,

–          Submitting claims,

–          Receiving payment via direct deposit.

To learn more about the program, including the registration and claim submission process, go to COVIDUninsuredClaim.HRSA.gov. HRSA also developed a video overview of the program. In addition, providers can access real-time technical support, as well as service and payment support, by calling the Provider Support Line at 866-569-3522. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday in your local time zone.
