State Funds for Uninsured Needing COVID-related Primary Care

December 7, 2020

The NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) reminds you that you may receive reimbursement for COVID-19 related primary care services provided to individuals who are uninsured and living in North Carolina. The $7.8 million in funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis until Dec. 30, 2020. So far, only about $60,000 has been spent leaving the bulk of the funding still available.

COVID-19 related primary care services can include but are not limited to the following situations:
• An individual lost their health insurance due to the COVID-19 pandemic and requires primary care;
• An uninsured individual requires treatment of conditions that put them at a higher risk for COVID-19 infection;
• An uninsured individual’s medical conditions have worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic and require treatment; and/or
• An uninsured individual tested positive for COVID-19 and requires treatment.

The Department encourages you to submit your claims for reimbursement through the NCTracks secure portal. To assist with the submission process, please use the Job Aid (ORH COVID-19 Claim Submission) located under the heading Claims Submission on the User Guides & Fact Sheets page. The Job Aid will also be accessible in SkillPort (the secure NCTracks Learning Management System) shortly.
