DMHC APL on Continued Coverage of COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing

The DMHC issued an All Plan Letter (APL) reminding health plans that federal law continues to require them to cover COVID-19 testing for their enrollees when the testing provides an individualized assessment of whether the enrollee has a COVID-19 infection. Health plans must cover the testing whether it is performed in or out of network and may impose no prior authorization or cost-sharing requirements on such testing. Health plans must cover the testing whether the person is symptomatic or asymptomatic and regardless of whether the person has had recent known or suspected exposure to COVID-19.
