COVID-19 Practice Management Resources
These resources are intended to help practices manage the non-clinical aspects of the pandemic. Any new clinical guidance for physicians will be posted on ACP’s COVID-19 resource page.
- A new HHS COVID-19 Coverage Assistance Fund (CAF) will cover the costs of administering COVID-19 vaccines to underinsured patients with health plans who either do not cover vaccine administration fees, or require cost-sharing. Physician practices can submit claims for reimbursement consideration after the patient’s insurance has denied or only partially paid for the administration of the vaccine. Click here for more information.
- The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 included some financial assistance to patients. (1) COBRA premium assistance is available for eligible individuals April 1 through September 30, 2021. (2) Up to $9000 for funeral expenses for families of people who died due to COVID-19 since January 2020. See “Tax and Other Benefits” on this page.
