Please note that antibody testing is appropriate as a diagnostic test in limited circumstances and will not be a benefitable service when conducted for return to work or surveillance purposes.
Asymptomatic and pre-surgical COVID-19 diagnostic testing is covered when medically appropriate and supported by the accepted standards of current medical practice.
As you may know, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act) require health plans to cover diagnostic testing of COVID-19. Coverage must be provided without any cost-share, prior authorization, or medical management requirements.
