What You Need to Know About COVID Healthcare Costs

January 29, 2021

If you are leery to seek treatment or testing for Covid-19 due to the cost, fear not, you are covered.  Despite the multiple reports of hospitals not disclosing to uninsured COVID-19 patients that their hospital bills are covered, the reality is the government is covering patients through Medicaid.  Know your rights and see more details below.

1) Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act designated a portion of the fund to cover uninsured hospital patients. Read more on steps to financial relief from the US Treasury website.

2) Health care providers who have conducted COVID-19 testing or provided treatment for uninsured individuals with a COVID-19 primary diagnosis can request reimbursement through CARES electronically and will be reimbursed at Medicare rates. Read more on hrsa.gov.

3) Health care providers may submit claims for individuals in the U.S. who lack health insurance.
