UnitedHealthcare to Cover Cost of COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests

Hi,

The following information came from United Healthcare, the carrier providing your HBP medical coverage.  HBP members are commercial fully insured members.  Please share with all medical plan covered employees.

UnitedHealthcare to Cover Cost of COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests

UnitedHealthcare will waive member cost sharing, including copays, coinsurance and deductibles, for COVID-19 diagnostic testing provided at approved locations in accordance with CDC guidelines for all commercial fully insured members.

If your primary care provider or medical professional thinks you may have COVID-19, they will contact the CDC or your local public health department for steps to follow on testing. Right now, the only test available in the United States is the one supplied by the CDC and some state public health departments at no charge. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to approve testing at designated labs around the country
