On March 17, 2020, Insurance Commissioner Kiser issued Bulletin 2020-1, notifying insurers of the department’s requests pertaining to COVID-19. The bulletin asks insurers to provide accurate information, to provide COVID-19 testing without cost sharing or prior authorization, to allow insureds to obtain on-time refills before the scheduled refill date and to limit the cost of surprise medical bills. Although the bulletin is addressed to insurers, employers should familiarize themselves with this directive in the event that any of their employees need to obtain testing or treatment for COVID-19.
