RHC COVID-19 Funding for Previously Unpaid RHCs - Reply Requested by February 12

Jan 12, 2021

The National Association of Rural Health Clinics (NARHC) and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH), as technical assistance providers for the Rural Health Clinic (RHC) COVID-19 Testing Program are working to identify any RHCs who have not yet received payment under the RHC COVID-19 Testing Program.

The purpose of the HRSA-funded RHC COVID-19 Testing Program is to broaden support to COVID-19 testing efforts and expand access to testing in rural communities. Some RHCs may not have appeared in the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services data used to make previous payments (QCOR as of October 2020 and Provider of Service as of September 2020) due to their RHC's certification date or were left out of earlier payment data due to administrative and technical issues.

If your RHC has not yet received funding ($49,461.42 per RHC) but believe that you may be eligible for payment under the RHC COVID-19 Testing Program, please complete the Contact Me About Funds form by February 12, 2021.

HRSA has funded NARHC to provide technical assistance to RHCs on the RHC COVID-19 Testing Program. As part of the cooperative agreement, NARHC developed the RHC COVID-19 Testing Report website. If you have additional questions you may email RHCcovidreporting@narhc.org.
