On April 22, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the allocation of funds established by the CARES Act (P.L. 116-136) to reimburse providers for the testing and treatment of uninsured patients. Providers must enroll in the COVID-19 Uninsured Program, which will be overseen by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA). Further information, including frequently asked questions and a COVID-19 Uninsured Program portal user guide, can be found on the HRSA website. See IHA’s fact sheet here.
