A big part of our commitment to you includes making sure you won't have to worry about paying for treatment for this disease. As a result, you won't have to pay for COVID‑19 treatment from doctors, hospitals, and other health care professionals. Your COVID‑19 testing is covered, too. You'll also pay nothing if you have a telehealth visit with a doctor.
We know you already have enough things to worry about these days. We want you to focus on your health and care for your loved ones instead. And if you need help, we're here for you. The following information explains how.
Get a COVID‑19 test at no cost. UniCare covers COVID‑19 testing and the care visit where the test takes place with no out-of-pocket costs. Find a COVID‑19 testing location near you by using the test facility finder. At-home testing is also covered. But make sure you talk to a doctor first to be certain you need a COVID‑19 test. Testing is covered in the following circumstances:
- For all symptomatic individuals as identified by a health care provider, even those with mild symptoms
- For all individuals identified as a close contact of confirmed or clinically diagnosed COVID-19 cases by a local Board of Health, Department of Public Health, the Community Tracking Collaborative, or a health care provider
- For any individual upon admission to a health care facility, including but not limited to a hospital operated or licensed by the Department of Public Health or Mental Health, long-term acute care hospital, or skilled nursing facility
Get COVID‑19 treatment at no cost. If you're diagnosed as having COVID‑19, you won't have any out-of-pocket costs for COVID‑19 treatment from doctors, hospitals, and other health care professionals.
