Health Insurance Ensures No Surprise Bills for Coronavirus Testing

Nevada Insurance Enrollment Explains That Coronavirus Tests Will Be Covered by Health Insurance

LAS VEGAS - nvtip -- With the coronavirus rapidly sweeping the globe, testing is essential. Officials want people to get tested. COVID-19 testing is considered "preventative" with a "Qualified Health Plan", so there is no co-pay or cost involved. If Nevadan's are unaware of this particular fact, they may worry about getting a surprise bill for COVID-19 testing, and may not get the test at all. Health insurance CEO's have collaborated with government officials and vowed that those who have health insurance won't have to worry about surprise bills for COVID-19 testing. All Co-pays for Coronavirus testing will be waived.

Health Insurance Companies Waive Co-Pays for COVID-19 Testing

Health insurance companies also agreed to cover the cost of telemedicine which allows patients to speak with a doctor over the phone. Coverage will be extended for the treatment of COVID-19, but beyond testing (like hospitalization) your deductible and co-insurance will most likely still apply.

This puts more people at risk of becoming gravely ill or even dying from the novel coronavirus. In addition to the health implications, failure to get tested will allow the virus to spread.
