How to Make Sure You Get That (Free) Covid Test
- 5 min read
As of February 26, 2021, comprehensive health insurance plans must cover Covid testing, vaccines and related costs without cost sharing. This coverage includes people who are asymptomatic, people who don’t suspect they’ve been exposed and people who want to test just to make sure they’re not exposing a vulnerable loved one to the disease. The guidance also guarantees free testing for uninsured patients. What it doesn’t cover is surveillance testing or return-to-work requirements.
