Regardless of your plan, in-network testing and treatment for COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) is covered 100%. There is no member cost-sharing—that means no copays, coinsurance, or deductibles. All plans provide coverage for treatment and services related to COVID-19. Medications administered as part of a hospital stay for COVID-19 are also covered 100%.
COVID-19 Screening and Testing
If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have mild-to-moderate symptoms, use the symptom checker at intermountainhealthcare.org, visit Intermountain’s coronavirus resources, or call the COVID-19 Hotline at 844-442-5224. A healthcare professional will screen you for COVID-19. If testing is appropriate, they will provide information on testing options and availability.
Intermountain Healthcare offers community testing in approximately 20 locations across our service areas in hopes of targeting the most affected communities. Locations found at the following link are for all community members, regardless of whether or not they have a testing order: https://intermountainhealthcare.org/covid19-coronavirus/get-testing/. These sites are prepared to collect samples for those who arrive with an order (having called the COVID-19 Hotline prior to their arrival) as well as ask screening questions of those who have not called ahead. Those who meet qualifications for certain symptoms will be tested through a nasal or mouth swab. Both screening and testing at these locations take place while a person remains in their vehicle. Not all people who are screened (over the phone or in person) will be tested.
Please note: To manage patient volumes at community testing sites, the Utah Department of Health and Intermountain Healthcare continue to urge the community to use the online symptom checker and COVID-19 Hotline first to learn if they should be tested. Callers are connected with medical professionals through the Hotline or Connect Care for assistance. Those who need to be tested be directed to their preferred testing location (list included at link above).
