The CARES Act requires that COVID-19 testing is covered without cost-sharing. This applies to all health insurance coverage in Minnesota. It is important to know that this applies to the test only, office visits are not covered through the CARES Act. Some insurance carriers have agreed to waive cost-sharing for in network visits associated with the COVID-19 test – it is important to check with your health insurance to find out what will be covered and what is in network.
If you have questions about your health insurance coverage call your insurance company prior to getting tested.
What Should I Know Before I Go?
Testing sites are designed to keep you and health care workers safe. Sometimes you may stay in your car. Other sites will screen you before you come indoors. Many sites will require an appointment before you arrive in order to ensure they have collected your contact and insurance information.
