COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Coverage

Your health is important to us. Here's what you need to know.


COVID-19 Coverage 

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%.



If you are insured on an Individual and Family plan, a Large or Small Employer plan, or FEHB plan and need to be screened and/or tested for COVID-19, we recommend you choose an in-network provider. These costs will be waived when these services are received through Intermountain Connect Care, office visits, urgent care (such as Intermountain InstaCare), hospital emergency rooms, or from the Department of Health. Testing is also covered out of network; however, you may be still be billed for excess charges beyond what we pay for these services.

All related emergency services and in-network COVID-19 treatments will be covered with no member cost sharing. Testing is also covered out of network; however, you may be still be billed for excess charges beyond what we pay for these services.

Please note: If you are insured through an employer with a self-funded plan, your benefits may be different. Please verify your benefits through your Human Resources team.

Screening and/or testing for COVID-19 is covered in- and out-of-network for a $0 copay. All emergency services and in-network COVID-19 treatments will also be covered for a $0 copay.

COVID-19 Screening and Testing 


If you believe you have COVID-19, 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 screening and testing locations, which are listed at https://intermountainhealthcare.org/covid19-coronavirus/get-testing/. Most locations screen for possible testing while you remain in your vehicle; however, the following hospitals require an order before arrival: American Fork Hospital, Cassia Regional Hospital, and Garfield Memorial Hospital. Not all people who are screened (over the phone or in person) will be tested. Testing is only recommended for those who meet certain criteria set by the Utah State Department of Health and Intermountain Healthcare. There are limited in-person screenings available at select locations.
