HSA Members Recieve Free COVID-19 Testing & Treatment

on Mar 13, 2020 in Announcements: Employer Group, Announcements: Family Health, COVID-19, General Parrott Insurance News



The IRS has issued Notice 2020-15, which allows High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) to cover COVID-19 testing and treatment pre-deductible. In other words, even if you haven’t met your deductible, your HDHP will pay for COVID-19 testing and treatment at no cost to you.

New legislation has also been proposed. Representatives Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Donna Shalala (D-FL) have introduced H.R. 6173 to Congress. If passed, health insurers would be required to cover the full cost of COVID-19 tests for any American who has health insurance through their employer, or who purchased a health plan through the ACA exchange. It would also add COVID-19 testing to the ACA preventive care mandate list, meaning that HDHPs would have to cover it without cost-sharing.
