UCare Coverage Changes for COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing
March 19, 2020
We will cover copays, coinsurance or deductibles for doctor-ordered COVID-19 tests meeting CDC guidelines for members in all of our plans, for the immediate future.
During this time, we will cover copays, coinsurance or deductibles for medically necessary clinic and urgent care services received at the visit when a COVID-19 test is administered at an in-network clinic, and at out-of-network clinics if in-network alternatives are not available.
There is currently no vaccine for COVID-19; UCare will follow CDC guidance on covering the vaccine when it becomes available.
