Carriers must ensure timely testing, diagnosis and screening for COVID-19, covering testing if performed by an out-of-network provider if an in-network provider is unable to conduct the testing, and utilize both in-network and in-state out-of-network laboratories to process COVID-19 tests with no cost share to the covered person.
This applies to all carriers offering individual, small group and large group health benefit plans, student health plans, and managed care plans, including health-savings-account-qualified health benefit plans, and grandfathered health benefit plans that are subject to the insurance laws of Colorado. Carriers who are third-part administrators for self-funded plans are strongly encouraged -- but not required -- to follow these requirements. Read the full regulation here.
