We have teams of doctors, providers, and experts who are working with state and local health departments, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We want to help you learn about Coronavirus (COVID-19) so you can protect yourself and the people around you. If you think you should be tested, want to talk to a health care provider, need medical care, or have questions about your out-of-pocket costs and benefits, we can help.
It's very important to be tested. It's very important that if you test positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19), that you are treated as soon as possible. To help with this, UnitedHealthcare is waiving member cost-sharing for the treatment of COVID-19 based on confirmed positive diagnosis until January 20, 2020 for Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, Individual and Group Market fully insured health plans. Implementation for self-funded employer customers may vary.
Learn more about coverage for testing, visits, treatment and additional benefits. If you have questions, call the number on your member ID card or sign in to your health plan account.
Together, we can help you protect your health and the health of your loved ones.
UnitedHealthcare recognizes that the persistence of COVID-19 cases across the country continues to have an impact on the health care system – both for COVID-19 related care as well as for regular preventive visits.

Specifically, the temporary changes include:
Implementation of these temporary changes may vary by health plan. State-specific and Medicaid rules, regulations, date limitations or exclusions may also apply.
To help support you, our Summary of COVID-19 Dates by Program summarizes the temporary measures for easy reference. And, the COVID-19 Testing and Treatment Billing Guide has helpful coding guidance to assist with claim submissions.
