ND| This bulletin addresses coverage for COVID-19 testing that is medically necessary for diagnosis and treatment. The department recommends that Carriers take steps to immediately remove any barriers to this such as:
- Establish Help-Lines to respond to calls about COVID-19
- Relax prior approval requirements for testing
- Relax out-of-network requirements
- Forego cost-sharing for testing
The department expects Carriers to cover PCR and antigen testing, and to cover FDA-authorized antibody testing.
