Insurance Commissioner Requires Coronavirus Testing Without Cost Sharing


On March 10, 2020, Department of Banking and Insurance Commissioner Caride issued Bulletin No. 20-03, requiring insurers to waive all cost-sharing payments for the screening and testing for COVID-19. Insurers must also provide coverage for out-of-network testing in the same manner as it is provided in-network. Additionally, when a COVID-19 vaccine is formulated, insurers are encouraged to offer that vaccine without cost sharing. Employers can notify plan participants who may need to receive testing that the testing will be provided without cost sharing.
