COVID-19 TESTING AND SCREENING
There was some additional
legislation passed (the CARES Act) that changed the cost-sharing requirements
for COVID-19 Testing. See below:
for COVID-19 testing both in and out of network are provided to
participants at zero cost-sharing for claims on or after January 27, 2020
(previously this was only effective starting on April 2, 2020).
list of permissible COVID-19 testing that is to be provided without
cost-sharing includes not only FDA-approved tests, but tests that are
pending FDA approval, tests that have been approved for use by the state,
and tests that the Department of Health and Human Services has deemed
prescription drug claims only, all Part-D covered drugs are available for
up to a 90-day supply.
Effective April 2, 2020 any screening and/or testing for COVID-19 completed in-network and out of network will be paid at 100% with no pre-approval or other medical management techniques necessary. This includes but is not limited to, the visit, associated lab testing and radiology services in an in-network and out of network hospital, emergency or urgent care setting, or medical office. If a member receives a COVID-19 screen and/or test, all medical services that lead to the medical provider to administer the COVID-19 screen and/or test, will be paid at 100% both in-network and out-of-network. An example of such medical services that may lead a medical provider to administer a COVID-19 screen and/or test, may be a flu test with a negative reading that then leads the medical provider to administer a COVID-19 screen and/or test due to the similarity of the symptoms between the flu and COVID-19.
