No Cost for Medical Services Related to Testing for COVID-19
If a health plan member thinks they have COVID-19, their health insurance must pay for the cost of visiting the doctor and the test as a preventive measure. Generally, members must pay a portion of the cost to visit their medical provider, however, the cost of the provider visit and testing related to COVID-19 is covered by Prominence Health Plan.
For Providers of Health Care
Health care providers, including but not limited to, primary care providers (PCP), specialists, urgent care centers, and emergency departments should not collect out-of-pocket costs when the purpose of the visit is to be tested for COVID-19. Providers should also not impose out-of-pocket costs for COVID-19 testing and for administration of a COVID-19 immunization as one becomes available.
