Audit of Health Resources and Services Administration's COVID-19 Uninsured Program
To address the COVID-19 pandemic, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (PPP) together appropriated $2 billion to reimburse providers for costs associated with conducting COVID-19 testing and testing-related items and services for the uninsured. Additionally, a portion of the $178 billion appropriated to the Provider Relief Fund by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) and PPP will be used for treating uninsured individuals with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis. HHS, through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), launched the COVID-19 Uninsured Program Portal, a single electronic claims processing system for health care providers for submitting claims for reimbursements for diagnostic testing and treating uninsured individuals. We will determine whether claims for COVID-19 diagnostic testing and treatment services reimbursed by HHS through HRSA's COVID-19 Uninsured Program complied with Federal requirements.
