COVID-19 treatment and testing

COVID-19 testing

For dates of service on or after May 12, 2023:

  • COVID-19 testing performed in the provider’s office will be covered at regular plan cost shares for in- and out-of-network services.
  • Out-of-network COVID-19 testing claims will be priced at allowed amounts rather than a negotiated or cash price. Balance billing may apply for commercial members, depending on the service.
  • We will no longer cover over-the-counter (OTC) tests. Some Medicare Advantage members have OTC benefits that cover purchasing test kits.
