For all employees who are enrolled in the State of Vermont's Employee Medical Coverage:
BCBSVT will cover COVID-19 testing performed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Vermont Department of Health (VDH), or a laboratory approved by CDC or VDH, with no co-payment, coinsurance, or deductible requirements. This coverage includes in-network provider office or urgent care visits and emergency services visits to test for COVID-19.
If in-network providers are unavailable to conduct testing for COVID-19, we will cover out-of-network testing on the terms outlined above.
This directive is effective immediately and remains in effect until May 5, 2020 unless extended by the Commissioner of the Department of Financial Regulation.
