What is the cost to get tested for COVID-19?

The CARES Act requires health insurance companies to pay for the following in-network costs directly related to COVID-19 testing:

  • Office Visits (in-person and telehealth)
  • Urgent Care Visits
  • Emergency Room Visits
  • Handling fees and laboratory costs for processing a COVID-19 test

Insurers are only required to pay the full cost of an office visit during which a test is ordered or performed if the visit pertains specifically to COVID-19 symptoms, exposure, or diagnosis not for un-related office visits during which a COVID-19 test is ordered or administered.

Under the Cares Act If a patient has insurance and seeks COVID-19 testing and/or treatment from an out-of-network provider, the patient is only responsible for out-of-pocket payment no greater than what the patient would have otherwise been required to pay if the care had been provided by an in-network provider.

There are few coverage exceptions:

  • Short-term limited-duration insurance plans may impose deductibles for COVID-19 testing.
  • Excepted benefit plans (e.g., dental-only plans) and group health plans that do not cover at least two current employees.
  • Those that may have been grandfathered an exception.

If you have insurance and get a bill contact the Wisconsin Commissioner of Insurance:

If you don't have insurance:

  • Talk to your medical provider and ask if you will be charged. Providers who participate in the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) COVID-19 Uninsured Program can submit a claim to HRSA to be reimbursed. If your provider participates in this program you should not be charged.
  • If you or your provider has questions, visit the US Department of Health and Human Services website.
