COVID-19 Claims Reimbursement for Uninsured Patients

Health Resources and Services Administration is accepting requests for claims reimbursement to healthcare providers, generally at Medicare rates, for testing uninsured individuals for COVID-19, for treating uninsured individuals with a COVID-19 primary diagnosis and for COVID-19 vaccine administration to the uninsured. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. A separate program, the HRSA COVID-19 Coverage Assistance Fund, is available to reimburse providers for COVID-19 vaccine administration to underinsured individuals whose health plan either does not include COVID-19 vaccination as a covered benefit or covers COVID-19 vaccine administration but with cost-sharing.
