The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced an additional payment amount for administering in-home COVID-19 vaccinations to homebound Medicare beneficiaries.
Providers may request an interim reconciliation report from Noridian Healthcare Solutions, the Medicare administrative contractor (MAC) for California, that summarizes the amount of Medicare Advanced and Accelerated Payment (MAAP) repayments recouped compared to the amounts still outstanding.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced that it will devote $4.8 billion from the American Rescue Plan to support the HRSA COVID-19 Uninsured Program. The HRSA COVID-19 Uninsured Program provides reimbursements to eligible providers for claims attributed to COVID-19 testing, treatment, or vaccination for uninsured individuals. Additional information about the program is available on the HRSA website.
