HRSA Announces New COVID-19 Reimbursement Program
ATTENTION CLIENTS IMPORTANT INFORMATION – COVID-19 CLAIMS BILLING AND PAYMENT FOR UNINSURED RESIDENTS
SNF Solutions has learned about a new program announced by HRSA, effective 4/27/20, providers can begin to register as a provider, through HRSA in coordination with UHC/Optum, to seek reimbursement for Uninsured Residents diagnosed and treated specifically for COVID-19 retroactive to 2/4/20.
The primary diagnosis must be for COVID-19 to qualify for reimbursement of the SNF stay. See attached document/announcement for the details and program timelines.
Upon receipt of payment for the applicable days, the remaining balance for those days reimbursed would need to be written off (cannot pursue collection of remaining balance for days reimbursed).
A Facility representative will need to register the provider and act as the Administrator for the program, in order to submit claims beginning on May 6, 2020. The link below will take you to the HRSA website with instructions on registering and claims submission.
