Press Release on “ Bristol Healthcare assists providers/hospitals to bill for nearly a million Covid-19 vaccine doses” was published on www.issuewire.com on 14 December 2021.
Cerritos, California Dec 14, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – Bristol Healthcare Services, a medical billing and coding company located in Los Angeles, California, is pleased to announce that as of the end of last month, the company has assisted healthcare providers and hospitals to bill for nearly a million administered COVID-19 vaccine doses.
In May 2021, a separate program, the HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration) COVID-19 Coverage Assistance Fund, was announced by the Biden-Harris Administration. It reimburses providers for COVID-19 vaccine administration to underinsured individuals whose health plan either does not include COVID-19 vaccination as a covered benefit or covers COVID-19 vaccine administration but with cost-sharing.
Healthcare providers who have conducted COVID-19 testing or provide treatment for uninsured individuals with a COVID-19 primary diagnosis on or after February 4, 2020, or provided COVID-19 vaccine administration to uninsured individuals can electronically request claims reimbursement and will be reimbursed generally at Medicare rates.
Successfully vaccinating the country’s population presents many challenges, from production to distribution and deployment. To cope with the challenges, vaccine production was increased, and thousands of vaccinators and locations to get vaccinated were added. With this massive increase in vaccinations, the work of billing for medical services proportionately increases.
Bristol Healthcare Services has been assisting providers and hospitals in filing claims for reimbursement of COVID-19-related medical services. “Many of our established and long-standing clients and some newer ones were facing a huge backlog in terms of electronically requesting reimbursement under the HRSA program. We were able to step up to the need and get the work done,” says Jay Ganesh, CEO, of Bristol Healthcare.
The company has billed for almost a million doses of vaccines administered under this program, with the bill value totaling $10 million upwards. “We are honored to assist medical professionals who are in the frontline sacrificing everything to help humanity,” says Jay Ganesh, CEO.
