The Health Resources and Services Administration this week hosted webinars for health care providers on the agency’s COVID-19 Uninsured Program Portal. During the webinars, representatives from HRSA and United Health Group, the portal administrator, reviewed the process for submitting claims through the portal. They also announced the release of a number of new resources, including an interactive user guide, a provider checklist for claims reimbursement, and guides on Optum Pay™ direct deposit enrollment and alternative payment routing options. Additional materials will be released in the coming weeks.
