Does medical insurance cover COVID-19 testing?
COVID-19 insurance coverage: By law, insurance companies cover all costs for COVID-19 testing and treatment and should match advertised self-pay rates. Dr. Nangrani at Woodlands Functional Family Medicine accepts medical insurance for your COVID-19 PCr and Antibody tests. All tests are self-pay if you do not have medical insurance at $110 per test. COVID-19 tests explained.
The CARES act requires comprehensive private health insurance plans to cover testing needed to detect or diagnose COVID-19. Each insurance company has Explanation of Benefits (EOB) that will be shared with you. If any insurance company is late in implementing the COVID-19 coverage and you experience any issues in getting coverage, contact Texas Department of Insurance hotline 1-800-252-3439.
Why did my insurance coverage charge more than the cost of the test I had?
The CARES Act requires insurance companies to also pay for supplies (like PPE) and services (tests) that are required to offer these tests to you. We will directly bill your insurance and you will not be out of pocket. Don’t forget to bring your insurance card and information with you to your testing appointment.
We look forward to helping you!
