Expanded Coverage for COVID-19 Essential Diagnostic Testing

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), along with the Departments of Labor and the Treasury, recently issued guidance that announces the expanded coverage for essential diagnostic testing and other related services at no cost (no co-pays or out-of-pocket expenses). To assist in the efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, this testing will include antibody testing (when it becomes widely available). This will include urgent care visits, emergency department visits, and in-person or telehealth visits to doctor’s offices that result in an order for or administration of a COVID-19 test.
