Innovative Insurance is here to help with resources related to your plan including cost and coverage for diagnosis and testing for the COVID-19 virus. Below is a general list of resources from our most popular carriers/plans. We may also recommend reminding employees of your EAP programs.
Telemedicine Options - highly encouraged as first step for general symptom review.

Note: The IRS has announced (Notice 2020-15) that health plans that normally qualify as HDHPs will not lose that status because they cover the cost of testing for or treatment of COVID-19 before plan deductibles have been met. This notice applies only to HSA-eligible HDHPs.
